This summer, hundreds of students and teachers will be on the Texas A&M campus getting real-world experiences in STEM education. Aggie STEM is hosting the 9th annual Aggie STEM Summer Camps (ASSC) starting June 10.

Students will participate in either a one- or two-week camp with activities ranging from coding to veterinarian science. They will also get the chance to participate in a variety of social activities and local field trips. This is also the second year for Aggie STEM’s all girls camp option.

I had an amazing time and I wish I wasn’t a senior this year so I could return next summer.”

To be eligible, students must be entering 8th – 12th grade in the fall. The camp dates run from June 10-23, June 24-30 and July 8-21. Registration costs include classes, materials and supplies, camp shirt, physics and/or chemistry shows, local field trips, rooming, and all meals and snacks.

Aggie STEM is also hosting one- or two-week STEM Teacher Boot Camps. Teachers will observe research-based effective practices and participate in workshops to develop their content and pedagogical skills. They will also have the opportunity to visit various research labs on campus and interact with those researchers.

Teachers that participate in the two-week camp will also be provided an online support system to further their learning in the fall semester.

Dates for this year’s camp are June 10-16, June 17-23 and June 10-23.

Ten teachers will be sponsored to attend the Teacher Boot Camp at a reduced cost if they participate in a research project associated with the camp. They will also receive materials, equipment and resources to use in their classroom for the successful completion of the project.

All meals, housing and transportation are included in the cost. You can find out more and register at tx.ag/stembootcamp.
