Youth Programs

Take your future for a test drive.
What if? It’s never too early to start asking that question. And UT Arlington has a variety of programs for middle and high school learners to test their interests, get comfortable with the college experience, and grow in confidence and ability.

Engineering and Computer Science Summer Camps. Without a doubt, our camps are the best way to get broad exposure to a number of engineering disciplines as well as a big university experience, all in one-week sessions. Open to high school students. Day or residential camps available.

Honors Academy. This is an exceptional chance for motivated students to earn college credit while they're still enrolled in high school.

Materials Science. This one-day camp is designed for middle and high school students and exposes them to the world of materials science and engineering. Includes a tour of UT Arlington’s nationally recognized NanoFab facility and a show at the  Planetarium.

Biology Summer Science Enrichment. Some programs give an overview of several different disciplines. Others are laboratory based and involve field work.

Music. Every summer the best instructors in the nation join the most talented student-musicians for incredible learning opportunities. Camps are open to elementary, middle, and high school students. In most camps, students can stay on campus or commute.

RoPro Challenge. Limited to only 30 openings, this three-day camp is designed for high school juniors, seniors, and new graduates who would like to program (play with) robots and learn about college at the same time.

TRIO Pre-College Programs. These programs, which include Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math and Science, and Educational Talent Search, are designed to develop academic and motivational skills for students in grades 7–12.
