Workforce shortages in the field of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) has led to an increasing need of STEM outreach programs for high school students. This paper presents an integrated approach to such programs, involving valuable contributions from government agencies, universities and professional associations. Beginning and end-of-program surveys, coupled with demographic data, provide rich information on participants’ assessment of the program and their preferences in educational instruments. Findings can help educators and outreach program directors develop appealing curriculum activities that suit high school students' learning styles, and thus stimulate greater interest in STEM college education.
