And from the experience, Executive Director Wilena McClain now many of them have a greater appreciation for STEM research. 

"They learned that they're doing math everyday so we have classes that we've actually incorporated in our summer camp to show them just how math is a part of your everyday life. And also encouraging them to explore STEM careers," said McClain.
