About the NCIA/MATC Sovereign Native Youth STEM Leadership Academy

The NCIA/MATC Sovereign Native Youth STEM Leadership Academy is a six-day summer academy that provides Native American students with the leadership skills to positively impact their tribal communities and shape their futures. The academy, held on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus, offers a broad range of interactive, hands-on activities that expose students to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and transportation-related opportunities after high school while gaining a greater appreciation for Native American history and culture. Activities include completing daily video diaries, touring the Nebraska State Capitol, exploring Standing Bear Trail, building remote control boats, and visiting several museums. The academy is an extension of the Nebraska Commission on Indian Affair’s Sovereign Native Youth Leadership Program and the Mid-America Transportation Center’s STEM after-school program Roads, Rails and Race Cars.
