Square Root Academy’s 4th Annual Great STEM Summit (GSS), is a crash course experience into the wonderful world of STEM! The Academy along with industry partners have created a STEM experience of a lifetime where GSS scholars will be exposed to Sacramento’s greatest experiments STEM has to offer!

During this event, GSS scholars will participate in hands on workshops led by industry leaders. These experiments will cover topics ranging from robotics to game design. Scholars will also be able to invent, hack, and make their wildest dreams come true during our Maker Zone Breakout Session where they will get to interact firsthand with cutting edge tech such as laser cutting & 3D printing. Scholars and families alike will also get to hear from dynamic speakers currently in the STEM profession. In previous years, GSS has welcomed over 250 scholars to participate in hands on Great STEM Workshops in coding, video game design, water filtration, and several other STEM based activities. GSS is one of the many experiences developed by Square Root Academy to remove the digital divide between scholars living in underserved communities and their more affluent peers.

Square Root Academy is dedicated to helping at risk scholars get on track to pursue careers in STEM by exposing scholars to high quality project based learning anchored in STEM. As with all Square Root Academy events to date, GSS is a no-cost event to ensure access for any and all scholars with a desire to expand their knowledge of STEM. ​Register your 5th-8th grade scholars today as space is limited!
