Middle school-Aged students


It’s time to graduate from Hk Summer STEAM and level up to Hk STEAM Up!  STEAM Up! is for rising 6th through 8th grade students interested in a project based learning approach to STEAM. This three-week long program will encourage scientists to tap into their creativity as they explore sustainability, engineering, and innovation while applying principles of biology, chemistry, and environmental sciences to real world problems. Each week students will work on a different concept that will ultimately lead to the completion of their project at the end of the three weeks. The program will culminate in a final presentation open to family and friends. 

Location: The program is held at Corpus Christi, located on 121st between Broadway and Amsterdam directly behind Columbia University’s Teachers College. The Morningside Heights area is served by the A, B, C, D, and 1 subway lines.

Dates: July 29th to August 16th (students must be available for all three weeks of the program)

Week 1 - Introduction to the engineering design process

Week 2 - Understanding sustainability - environmental civil engineering design challenges

Week 3 - Build a solution to an identified problem. Team presentations to friends and family!

Times: 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM

Ages: Rising Grades 6 to 8

Tuition:  $1946. All material fees and trips are included.  If you are interested in a scholarship, the scholarship application is now a part of the general application which can be accessed at the button below.

Application Process: This year the application includes a section for your HYPOTHEkid(s) to tell us what interests them the most about science! Filling out the application does not mean that they are automatically accepted into the program - our goal is to choose 15 students who are curious about science, engineering, and have a knack for discovery and creativity!

The application is now open!
