Mitchell-Neilson Elementary School students Don Kim, front, and Freddy Sanchez are joined by fellow MNE student/cameraman Trevelle Timmons during one of the activities conducted during the two-week Camp PRiSM, a collaboration between MTSU and Murfreesboro City Schools. About 50 MNE students participated in the 2012 event, where they learned how to make Sharpie pens, spent time in MTSU chemistry and engineering-technology laboratories and the MTSU Dairy and milk-processing plant and toured the Nissan plant in Smyrna and MTSU aerospace facilities at Murfreesboro Airport.

Camp PRiSM, or Practices in Science and Math, helps the students expand their knowledge in math and science.
