NE STEM 4U follows the OPS Academic Calendar. The schools use 8-week sessions to break down the schedule of after-school providing. With each session, we introduce new lessons and may work with new students, depending on the school’s program policy. Note that undergraduate mentors are scheduled by semester, not session, so regardless of session turnover, mentors remain at one school for the entire semester (excepting extenuating circumstances).
Session 1: August 19 - October 11
Session 2: October 15 - December 7
Session 3: December 10 - February 15
Session 4: February 18 - April 12
Session 5: April 15 - May 31 (UNO does not provide mentoring this session)
