June 5 is registration deadline for STEM camp at MTSU for underrepresented middle school girls

The deadline to register for a STEM camp at MTSU for underrepresented middle school girls is Tuesday, June 5, and openings remain, a camp official said.

The fifth- through eighth-graders will spend one day during the week of camp, June 18-22, to learn about each letter in STEM: one day on science, one on technology, one on engineering and one on mathematics.

The camp’s closing day will include a group activity for participants to create a poster describing one activity they particularly liked during the week.
