NIU STEM Outreach programs have a growing international presence. Students from around the world participate in our summer residential camps, and we are increasing our presence across both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Our hands-on, highly interactive and engaging pedagogy is in demand, and we are happy to share what we know with students and educators across the globe.
