JROTC STEM Leadership Academy is a weeklong residential camp for high school students who have previously participated in the Army 4th Brigade JROTC program in their high school. The main purpose and goal of this program is to introduce students to the various fields of science, technology, and engineering and experience a modified military environment so that they can become involved in STEM, ROTC and the Corps of Cadets as collegiate undergrads whether at Virginia Tech or otherwise, leading to careers in STEM. Participants take part in hands-on activities, lab tours and complete a design project, culminating in a showcase on the last day.
