Participants take part in STEM-based programs at Eastern Washington University, Gonzaga University and Spokane Community College, while staying in EWU dorms.

Evening sports and activities will promote healthy living choices, good relationships and resiliency. With help from 4-H and Reserve Officer Training Corps faculty and students, teens will also learn to set goals and think critically.
