Summer camp for science scholars

Summer camp for science scholars

The Science Scholars Camp invites all interested high school students to apply to the June 28-30 event at Mississippi State University.

The experience is designed to introduce young people to science, technology and engineering careers through a variety of activities. Students will learn firsthand from scientists about biomedical engineering, natural and agricultural sciences, food science and health promotion, and more.

Participants will get a brief taste of college life by staying in a residence hall, eating at campus dining facilities, and attending lectures and activities in the classroom, lab and field.

A $25 refundable fee is required for registration. Students accepted into the program will receive the refund when they arrive on campus; those who are not accepted will also have the fee returned. Cancellation will result in the loss of the application fee.

Register by June 1 to be considered for the 2023 camp. Registration is limited to 24, and applications are reviewed upon arrival.

For more information or to register, contact Leslie Burger, camp coordinator and an environmental educator with the MSU Extension Service, at or 662-325-6686.

MSU is an equal opportunity institution. Contact Burger for disability accommodation or other information.
