Summer Science Camp Geared for Middle School Students Available at UTA

Applications for the 2017 ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp at the University of Texas at Arlington are now open.

The camp will run from June 11 to 23 for middle school students aspiring to study science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) and experience college life at the same time.

Students will live on UTA’s campus for two weeks, have an all-expense paid STEM learning experience and receive mentoring from Dr. Bernard Harris and ExxonMobil engineers.

“STEM careers offer wonderful opportunities and open doors for students who choose them. The camps serve to encourage and inspire the creativity and enthusiasm in students who are interested in STEM,” Dr. Bernard Harris, president of The Harris Foundation, said. “My goal with the camps is to empower the next generation of innovative thinkers, particularly those who may be socio-economically disadvantaged and have limited exposure to available options for careers in STEM.”

Students will also meet university faculty and students, participate in interactive, project-based classes, and learn from STEM educators. Other offerings include experiments, museum visits and hands-on learning opportunities.

 

Since it’s inception in 2006, the ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camps have served more than 12,583 students at colleges across the country. The camps are sponsored through a partnership with the ExxonMobil Foundation, the primary philanthropic arm of the Exxon Mobil Corporation.
