The 2013 SHSU STEM Summer Camp is full. Invitations have been extended to all students that were selected to attend. Thank you for your interest in our program.
The Sam Houston State University Summer STEM Camp will provide students with the opportunity to take part in hands-on activities, experiments, and field experiences related to animal science, plant science, aerospace engineering, renewable energy, and much more. This camp is for female high school students entering grades 9-12 in the fall of 2013. The camp promotes science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and supports historically underserved and underrepresented students with limited opportunities. Students selected to attend the camp will do so free of charge due to the generosity of the Texas Workforce Commission.
The SHSU STEM Camp is a one-week, educational, residential camp with the goal of increasing students’ knowledge and skills in the STEM areas while introducing them to college life and stimulating their interest in science and engineering as a potential career path. Each day, campers will participate in activities led by university faculty that include problem solving, research, critical thinking, and communication skills incorporated with biology, chemistry, physics, environmental sciences, engineering, technology, and design concepts.
The camp will be hosted by the Department of Agricultural and Industrial Sciences and will be held on the campus of Sam Houston State University, Huntsville, Texas. Students will be housed in a secure dorm on the university’s campus and all meals will be provided by an on-campus dining facility. Registration for the camp will remain open until the camp is full; however, this camp is limited to 30 participants, so please submit your application as soon as possible. Applications will not be considered until all requested documents are received.
