SUMMIT, NJ - Created in 2015 after the Patriots’ Path Council, Boy Scouts of America was charged with leading the first pilot program. the 'Summer STEM Institute' has been expanded to welcome grades 1 - 6. The program is run under the Learning for Life division of the Boy Scouts of America.

Designed for children who love to play with their hands, build structures, and are apt to 'devour' a computer, the Summer STEM Institute in Cedar Knolls offers fun, co-ed programs for youth entering grades 1 - 6. Children will work in teams, meet new friends and perform hands-on experiments that make science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) come alive. The SSI program has been designed and vetted by STEM educators and professionals to be fun and age-appropriate. Hands-on activities help students learn the academic concepts behind the experiments.

The program will be held for five weeks at the local Boy Scout headquarters in Cedar Knolls beginning July 10. Boys and girls will spend their days building carts, working on circuit boards, programing robotics, learning about astronomy, and so much more.
