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.
Those underrepresented in STEM fields include African-American, Hispanic and Native American girls.
The cost is $70 per person, and lunch and snacks will be provided. Limited scholarships are available.

The camp will meet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Thursday, June 18-21, and from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday, June 22, starting in Kirksey Old Main each day. Each of the daily STEM activities will be held at a different campus location. To find KOM, a printable campus map is available at http://tinyurl.com/MTSUParkingMap.
Parents will be invited to view the students’ presentations June 22.
“All of the activities are fun, hands-on and age appropriate,” said Dr. Ginger Holmes Rowell, interim director of the MTSU Tennessee STEM Education Center.
