This summer, Lilly Shipman from Barton, N.Y., will join outstanding elementary school students from across the nation to take part in a unique academic and career-oriented development experience, National Youth Leadership Forum: Pathways to STEM in Trenton, N.J.
National Youth Leadership Forum: Pathways to STEM is one of the Envision family of programs (www.envisionexperience.com) that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.
Lilly is a fourth grade student at Tioga Central School that was nominated by her teacher to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum: Pathways to STEM. She has since graduated from fourth grade with a President’s Academic Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement.
She is extremely excited to be attending the NYLF STEM program this summer. She will be learning about forensic science, technology, and emergency medicine. She is extremely excited to learn fingerprinting and getting to build a robot. Her favorite subject is Math, and she has high hopes of becoming either a forensic scientist or teacher when she is older.
“National Youth Leadership Forum: Pathways to STEM is a great opportunity for high-achieving scholars to get outside the classroom and see, through hands-on interactive learning, how to innovate and think creatively,” said Andrew Potter, the chief academic officer for Envision, adding, “These students, who have already proven themselves academically, will be challenged to work on real-world, student-created projects to bring their studies and career interests to life.”
Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape.
