Welcome to the Appalachian STEM Academy Middle School Student Site!

  • Cohort 1: July 6, 2024 – July 12, 2024
  • Cohort 2: July 13, 2024 – July 19, 2024

We are so excited for you to attend the Appalachian STEM Academy this summer. Approximately 26 students from throughout the Appalachian area will participate in the Appalachian STEM Academy. You will be assigned to a small group of students to work on a STEM project at the academy, and you will have several exciting recreational and learning experiences in the area. You can expect to make many new friends, learn a lot, and have an exciting time.

You will be staying at the Comfort Inn at 433 S Rutgers Ave, Oak Ridge, TN 37830. 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 the Appalachian STEM Academy. Please use our Onboarding Checklist on the side to ensure that you are on track to attend.
