The Explore STEM @UTSA is open to Texas high school students ages 14-22 with disabilities currently working with a Texas Workforce Commission counselor. The purpose of the camp is to expose students with disabilities to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers and excite them about the possibility of pursuing careers in STEM. Each day, students will work online in small groups with adult support to design, code, and build an autonomous driving AI computer program. The students will learn basic computer programming concepts, programming skills, computer vision, and machine learning. Through these activities, it is expected the students gain experience in software engineering and data science. In addition to the hands-on activities, students will also hear from guest speakers currently working in STEM fields to learn about different types of STEM careers they could pursue.
All instruction will be virtual, with at least 1 adult for every 3 students attending the Explore STEM! @USTA camp. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Kathy Ewoldt at firstname.lastname@example.org or Wei Wang at email@example.com
