The STEM & Leaf Corps is launching its first independent program Spring 2021 alongside long-term, existing partnerships with several schools in the Lubbock Independent School District.
In Spring 2021, STEM & Leaf Corps will be expanding its High School Special Topics Program to students across the United States. Students will be able to take part in projects and discussions led by National Merit Scholars, BS/MD Candidates, and PhD students.
This is a great introduction to topics traditionally unavailable to high school students and will offer an unparalleled learning experience. Students must apply and will be accepted based on qualifications and program availability.
