For a 2nd year, Richland hosts free summer camp for teens interested in science, technology, engineering and math.
Richland College is offering summer camps to introduce young students to a variety of careers and occupations in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). There are two STEM camps to choose from: June 13-26, 2012, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. (Tuition: $275 before May 31; $300 after); or, July 11-24, 2012, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. (Tuition: $275 before June 18; $300 after).
These camps are geared toward students ages 14-17 interested in potential career paths in STEM fields. Enrollment is limited to 80 students per session who must be U.S. citizens or documented residents. Requirements include a current school grade report and passing TAKS scores and a math or science teacher nomination.
During the two-week STEM camp, students will explore numerous career options, including:
•Web Design & Multimedia
Students will participate in tours and attend seminars with Richland College experts in areas related to student success in higher education, such as financial aid, academic advising, career exploration and planning, learning support services, and student activities. Students will be presented with options and will then select a program track they wish to explore in greater detail for the remainder of the camp. They will work together along with Richland College faculty to complete an integrated project related to an overall camp theme.
