As a 10-module 100% online STEM summer camp or afterschool STEM program, Career In STEM Bootcamp begins with career exploration essentials and a focus on building self-directed learning skills – how to connect EVERYTHING that happens in life to their future STEM career!

“Ashley, a certified science teacher, has done a remarkable job building for GEAR UP East Hartford a comprehensive 10-week career and STEM exploration after-school program that our students have thoroughly enjoyed. Her weekly lessons, together with my follow-up coaching sessions, have inspired personal passion projects that have allowed our students to begin exploring and imaging a range of STEM career possibilities. And Ashley and I have the honor of showcasing this work at NCCEP’s annual conference this year!”
– Benjamin Breault, East Hartford GEAR UP Project Director
“I wanted to say thank you for the kind words and for the incredible opportunity that was the STEM Bootcamp. I learned a lot from it; most importantly, what it is that I want to do in the future, as I discovered that not only do I want to study to become a physicist or research scientist, but I also want to advocate for causes that I believe in and communicate information to people about how, together, we can solve these problems and make the world a better place.
I greatly enjoyed all the activities and projects in the STEM Bootcamp, and the way you presented the day’s topic and encouraged participation from students made them something I looked forward to every day. I especially liked the earring challenges every day, as they helped me realize how pretty much anything can relate to STEM and STEM Careers.
I am writing and researching my PPP every chance I have, and I will have it ready by July 25th, but I plan to keep elaborating on it for many years to come as new problems arise and I hear about innovative ways to solve them.
Again, thank you so much ma’am and I hope you have a great summer!”
