Anna Newton, a student at Marcus High School, was among nearly 40 incoming high school juniors from around the country who participated in a new immersive summer program, Project Select, last month at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana.

The week-long residential STEM camp experience allowed students to explore the connections between science, technology, engineering and math through engaging activities, according to a news release from Rose-Hulman. Teams completed hands-on projects, under the mentorship of Rose-Hulman professors, in food science, air quality monitoring, solar technology and biofuels.

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology is recognized nationally as an elite STEM school for distinctions that include faculty excellence, return on investment, value added and career placement.
