FULL HEAD OF STEAM – Lake Superior State University adjunct art professor Heidi Finley demonstrates paper marbling to LSSU charter school students in an Arts Center studio. LSSU's charter school office was hosting more than 120 students from 21 LSSU-sanctioned charter schools for a weeklong science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) camp that ran June 30-July 3. LSSU has been hosting charter school summer camps for more than ten years. This past summer more than 400 charter school students attended ten dedicated camps that explored 14 disciplines, part of an effort to help students realize that college is an option open to them.
