Astronaut Bernard Harris sponsoring two-week camp at UT Arlington
ARLINGTON - The University of Texas at Arlington is taking applications now for this summer’s ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp, a free, two-week residential camp for middle school students.
The event is one of 25 planned this summer at universities throughout the U.S. to increase interest in math and science. It is made possible by a $80,000 grant to the UT Arlington College of Science from the ExxonMobil Foundation and Dr. Bernard Harris, Jr., the first African-American astronaut to walk in space and a NASA researcher. The Harris Foundation, which Dr. Harris founded, supports programs that empower individuals, in particular minorities and the economically and/or socially disadvantaged, to recognize their potential and pursue their dreams.
This year’s camp at UT Arlington will be July 17-29. To be selected, applicants must be members of traditionally underserved or underrepresented populations and entering sixth, seventh or eighth-grade in fall 2011. For other requirements and instructions on how to apply, please visit www.uta.edu/cos/sciencecamp/. Applications are due by April 8.
The University of Texas at Arlington is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer.
