Summer Science Training Program
The Millersville University School of Science and Mathematics is pleased to sponsor the 27th Annual Summer Science Training Program (SSTP). The program is for academically-talented students who will enter 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades in Fall 2013 and features intensive student-teacher interaction, advanced-level learning, as well as research and problem-solving experiences. The program's courses cover a wide range of academic disciplines in mathematics and science, providing students with learning opportunities not normally available at the pre-college level.
With an emphasis on cooperative learning and intense personal involvement, the courses are stimulating, challenging, and enjoyable. The participants use the fully-equipped labs and classroom facilities in the university's new Science and Technology Complex. The Summer Science Training Program is one of four programs designed to stimulate interest in science and mathematics among academically-talented, pre-college students. The other three programs are The Glenna Hazeltine Women in Mathematics and Science Conference, the Math Contest, and The Millersville University Science Lectureship and Competition. The Glenna Hazeltine Women in Mathematics & Science Conference and the Math Contest are held annually each Spring. The Millersville University Science Lectureship and Competition is an annual Fall event that brings many elementary and secondary school students to the university to expose them to science and career opportunities. The university encourages participation by young women, minorities, and other under-represented groups.
