Welcome to the Appalachian STEM Academy – High School Student Site!

  • July 6, 2024 – July 19, 2024

We are so excited for you to attend Appalachian STEM Academy this summer. Approximately 46 students from throughout the Appalachian Region will participate in the Academy. You will be assigned to a small group of students who will experience authentic research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Throughout the two weeks, you will participate in several awesome recreational and cultural experiences. You can expect to make many new friends, improve your STEM research skills, and have an incredible time.

You will be staying at Hampton Inn Knoxville-West at Cedar Bluff, 9128 Executive Park Drive in Knoxville, TN. You will be assigned a roommate when you arrive. You will not be given the opportunity to choose your roommate. However, you will complete the Student Travel Form, which is an onboarding card in Zintellect, to allow us to find a compatible roommate. In most cases, participants from the same school are not assigned to the same room. There will be two Resident Teacher chaperones staying with you at the hotel.

Explore this website for all information you will need to know as you prepare for Appalachian STEM Academy. Please use our Onboarding Checklist on the side to ensure that you are on track to attend.
