Welcome to Poca Middle School

The Governor's STEM Institute 

Governor's STEM Institute sessions are set for
WVU and the Green Bank Observatory
June 25-July 3, July 5-13, and July 22-August 4 

Become a Scientist or Mathematician at GSI

For decades, students were encouraged to learn about science, and they did. The did not, however, experience the excitement of discovery--of proving a theory.  Carl Sagan's declaration that we can "do" science fired the movement to make young students actual scientists. Books are still important; they contain necessary, fundamental,  background knowledge. With that knowledge, students can soar into the unknown. Recognizing that the scientific and mathematic discoveries have made a difference in the world were developed over long periods of time by motivated, dedicated, thorough, and creative minds, the State of West Virginia offers the Governor's STEM Institute, inviting students to delve into projects that allow them the time and opportunity to think and work like scientists and engineers, using high level mathematics and thinking skills while employing the latest technology.  There are two sessions for current 7th graders at WVU. They are June 25-July3 and July 5-13. Students who are current 8th graders will experience life in the quiet zone at the Green Bank Observatory, July 22-August 4.
We encourage all 7th and 8th graders to participate.
