Camp is underway

August 07, 2017

Thanks to your support, we have 52 students in this year's camp that now is underway.  There are 29 students who plan to major in sciences and 23 students who plan to be engineering majors.  Forty-three students are in one of three math camps (algebra, pre-calculus algebra, or calculus) and 9 are in the biology camp.    These students, 1/3 of whom are the first in their family to attend college, are very appreciative of the support you have provided for them to attend this camp. Here are some pictures of our students during the camp this year.  The camp runs through tomorrow.  Today, students got to tour sciences and engineering research labs.  Thanks again for your donation!
