Current STEM Module Topics

The Sunday Academy program held at tribal colleges in North Dakota are designed to spark interest in the middle and high school students and help with their transition to college level math, science and engineering studies at tribal colleges.

If you are designing a new Sunday Academy module, please use the STEM module template for instructors teaching lessons.

More STEM modules can be found on our Tribal College Summer Camp page.
