The AVID STEM Science & Math Summer Bridge Programs

Science teacher Malcolm McClain and one of his Summer Bridge students experiment with waves at Robert Louis Stevenson Intermediate.The AVID STEM Science & Math Summer Bridge programs are designed to strengthen students’ math and science skills and to increase the number of students who enroll and succeed in Algebra 1 by the 8th grade.

These summer bridge programs provide opportunities for students to explore math and science in high-engagement environments that are challenging, yet enjoyable for students. Each program teaches rigorous content using WICOR strategies such as Cornell notes, interactive notebooks, writing and vocabulary activities, and team building to engage students in STEM opportunities. The engaging, interactive lessons and collaborative activities also incorporate strategies that provide support for English Language Learners.

Take a closer look at the four summer bridge programs we offer. For more information on bringing one or all the AVID STEM Science & Math Summer Bridge programs to your district, please contact [email protected] or visit the Summer Bridge Resources page on MyAVID.
