Science and math are part of this summer’s plans for Morgan Phelan, Alyssia Bleau, Sophia Styles and Yarielis Rivera.

“These amazing 7th and 8th graders have demonstrated academic excellence and an interest in science and math,” said Schoharie High School guidance counselor Therese Kenyon. “They were chosen from a pool of candidates from all over the state to attend the Clarkson University Horizons program this summer.”

According to Clarkson’s website, “Through fun and challenging hands-on projects, the Horizons curriculum uses an integrated instructional module in mathematics, science and engineering that is supported by the arts and technology. . . At Horizons, participants are taught by a predominantly female staff composed of teachers and other professionals. Our young guests are also accompanied and mentored by program assistants who are undergraduate or graduate college women who excel in STEAM disciplines.”
