STEM Youth Explorer Academy
In the US today there is a large disparity between the number of STEM college graduates and position openings. The STEM disciplines are key to Rotary’s success in delivering on its “Seven Areas of Focus.”   STEM YEA started with an idea from one Rotarian in August 2020. On July 8, 2022, the inaugural four-day three-night residential STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) -focused Academy took place at Albright College (Reading, PA). Forty-one underserved middle-schoolers (12–13-year-olds) from schools in Montgomery, Bucks, Berks, Lehigh, and Northampton Counties had an opportunity to explore, experiment and engage in exciting subject areas to ignite their imaginations and enthusiasm to learn. The Academy is part of the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) organized by Rotarians that provide intensive leadership experience to develop skills for youth as leaders while having fun and making connections.
In 2022, Addison Hill represented Warrington and participated in the Academy curriculum: “Astrobiology, The Search for Life on Mars”. After camp Addie presented the highlights including building a Mars rover, planning travel to Mars, lasting friendships, and great food.

The event is also known as Purple Pinkie because recipients of the polio vaccine have their pinkie painted purple.

Every February, Warrington Rotary holds a Four Way Test Speech Competition. Local high school students must prepare a 5–7-minute speech to illustrate the Rotary Four-Way Test, described [below, to the left, to the right].
