Summer STEM Academy

The Summer School of the Alumni Association of the Scuola Galileiana rewards the best students from all over Italy with a week of courses entirely dedicated to STEM subjects.

Summer Stem Academy

The Summer STEM Academy is an advanced training course dedicated to 20 male and female upper secondary school students, selected from a large number all over Italy, for a week of in-depth study of STEM subjects, new trends in high tech and DE&I topics.

5 days of study, workshops and discussions led by young teachers under the age of 35 – including alumni of the Scuola Galileiana with international experience and outstanding profiles – to engage students with interactive teaching and opportunities for dialogue.

An engaging and stimulating experience for boys and girls who use this opportunity to experience the university world first-hand and to study in an environment that values merit irrespective of gender.

There are two key themes of the Summer STEM Academy: excellence in technical-scientific training and the promotion of diversity as a generator of innovation. We want to make boys and girls aware of the opportunities offered by STEM, encourage them in their interest in these subjects and draw attention to the importance of inclusive study environments.
