 MANY THANKS TO OUR TREMENDOUS SPONSORS:

Carbone Auto Group

Stewarts' Foundation

Oneida County Partners in Prosperity

 John Winter Foundation

Your generosity has allowed us to serve many many children in central New York with high quality hands-on STEM exploration experiences - we are grateful and proud of our affiliation with you. 

SummerITeens gives area students the opportunity to learn new topics they don't usually see in their home schools. SummerITeens courses use a hands-on approach introducing concepts, linking classroom work with its real-world application by modified experiments, and visiting with area professionals from relevant fields. In a SummerITeens camp, participants expand their career horizons, meet and work informally with SUNY Poly faculty and instructors, get to know like-minded students from other districts in the Mohawk Valley, and enjoy many of the fine facilities associated with our beautiful campus.
