You could participate in science competitions such as Science Bowl,

Science Olympiad, biology and chemistry Olympiad, Conrad challenge, Davidson fellows, envirothon, MIT think scholars program, Regeneron international science and engineering fair.

(Here's the link for more about those competitions; https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://blog.prepscholar.com/high-school-science-competitions&ved=2ahUKEwiJytub_a_sAhWryYUKHV11CA4QFjACegQIChAB&usg=AOvVaw1VqmwJGtx65xrbKZx2VUSf&cshid=1602537754143)

You could also attend STEM summer programs such as Yale young global scholars, Stanford university mathematics camp, High School Summer College at Stanford University, High School Honors Science, Math, and Engineering Program (HSHSP) at Michigan State, Harvard University Pre-College Program, Emory College Pre-College Program, Columbia University Summer Immersion.

Create or participate in STEM based clubs at your school, and also have a meaningful impact on such clubs.

Search for closest high school internship jobs and apply for one. Mind you, most getting a job as an intern is pretty competitive.

You could also tutor other students at STEM related subjects.
