What is iSci?

Previously called AIS PREP, iSci stands for Indigenous Science. It is a free STEAM summer school program for middle schoolers, which provides three summers of rigorous academic instruction. The curriculum includes classes in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. Hands-on projects, challenging homework, science field trips, and daily career awareness lectures keep students engaged as they progress. iSci’s academically demanding content has been proven to raise test scores and help students prepare for advanced high school courses.
