MUREP Aerospace Early STEM Institute High School Program Information

The MUREP Aerospace Academy High School Program provides STEM enrichment opportunities to high school students in Davidson County. Students will engage in problem based opportunities that involve scientific and engineering investigations, network with STEM professionals, and participate in college readiness and career opportunities.

High school students are encouraged to: 1) pursue their interest in STEM post-secondary degrees and careers, 2) engage in STEM experiential learning experiences utilizing technology, and 3) Increase high school students’ and their families’ knowledge and awareness of STEM internships, degrees, careers, and professional skills. 

The goals and objective of the project are implemented through a year round project design. The project will offer STEM enrichment sessions through an out-of-school model that occurs on weekends and during the summer. Out of school sessions will be held fall, spring, and summer.

School year STEM programming is located at Tennessee State University, five or more Saturdays per academic semester, 9:00 am-1:00 pm. During the summer, we meet for two weeks in July, Monday-Friday from 9am-2pm on the main campus of Tennessee State University. Choosing to apply your child(ren) for this program requires a commitment to the year-round program.

The Early STEM Institute curriculum is based upon content aligned with the NASA’s mission directorates of Earth Observations, Lunar Explorations, and Aeronautics Research, Science (Earth and Space Science), and Space Technology.

The Early STEM Institute is comprised of three pre-colleges:

  • College of Hydrology (2022-2023)
  • College of Lunar Explorations (2023-2024)
  • College of Acoustic Damping (2024-2025)
