A Place Where Learning Has No Limits and Together We Work for the Success of All

Welcome to the HHS Governor's STEM Academy

HHS Governor's STEM Academy students and faculty work together in projects, research, and experiences where dynamic participation through integration of multiple disciplines and technologies enrich our studies.  Students and faculty grow together through reflection on both successes and failures and both are valued.
