Over 300 students competed to attend Summer STEAM 2014’s cost-free, one-week, residential academy of intensive, immersive learning.  One hundred and thirty one students were invited to study math reasoning, encryption, material science,  physics, math modeling, or entrepreneurship.  In addition, the young scholars participated in leadership seminars, interactive sessions with STEAM professionals, field trips to museums and excavation sites, and wellness and recreational activities.  There are now 187 Summer STEAM Ambassadors in Virginia representing the state’s most able and motivated students.  Keep up the good work, Ariel!  GSMS is proud of you!
