About Summer STEM Institute

Summer STEM Institute was created in 2015 after the Patriots’ Path Council, Boy Scouts of America was charged with leading the first pilot program.  After a very successful inaugural summer, the program moved from their first location at the council service center in Cedar Knolls to its current location at Saint Vigil Academy in Morris Plains; just a few minutes down the road.  The first grade program will remain at the council service center. The new location accommodates more participants.  SSI is a program run under the Learning for Life division of the Boy Scouts of America.
