The Summer STEM Camps are one part of Thaddeus Stevens College’s K-12 Pathways to Achievement STEM Initiatives and includes the popular STEM in Gear mobile education unit.

The programs are sponsored by direct contributions from area foundations as well as many businesses and industries donations. For more information on the Thaddeus Stevens STEM in Gear Truck, see
