Hosted by The Tapia Center for Excellence and Equity at Rice University, the educational summer camps offer students an opportunity to live in a college dorm, work alongside Rice University STEM students, interact with renowned scientists, and participate in project-based, collaborative learning activities; all while working on skills development in communication and college preparation.
The camp is one week long (Sunday to Friday) and is focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) projects, and the camp features a day trip to NASA‚Äôs Johnson Space Center/Museums¬†as well a session where Rice University representatives will be available to answer questions.
Registration will be open soon! The cost for a week-long camp parent-paid is $1,500 per attendee or $1250 for 5 or more students being registered by the School Districts/Private Organizations. Any questions or concerns, please email Leticia Velazquez (email@example.com).
If possible, our goal is to work with school districts/organizations for providing partial funding for students that cannot afford the full parent-paid amount. If you are interested for your son or daughter to attend the program, as we will limit the number of attendees, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
