2018 Summer Camps

 

GIRLS LEADERSHIP IN PHYSICS & MATH CAMP 

(registration is open) (only 4 seats still available)

Open to girls currenty in 8th grade for the 2017-2018 school year. This camp is designed to help girls develop strength and inner confidence as they discover their unique identity. Girls make new life-long friends as they problem solve together in supportive teams and practice projecting an empowered sense of self. Spend time with female physicists, engineers, and mathematicians who are changing the world. Explore the UT Austin campus, tour labs, swim, play sports in the gym, and take field trips. Challenge yourself with Physics, Algebraic Structures, and Advanced Mathematical Problem Solving.  Dates: M-Th June 11th - July 19th, no camp July 2-6. 

RESEARCH IN LIFE SCIENCE CAMP  

(FULL)  

Research in Life Science Camp provides a unique opportunity for 5th and 6th grade students to explore cutting-edge research that takes place on the UT Austin campus. This week long camp provides opportunities to explore innovative topics such as neuroscience, biology, anatomy, and environmental sciences. Swimming, racquetball and bowling are included. Camp runs Monday - Friday July 30th - August 3rd. 

RESEARCH & STATISTICS CAMP 

(registration is open) (only 2 seats still available)

The University of Texas Research & Statistics Camp is for students in the 8th and 9th grades interested in university-level research. In this six-week camp, students have the opportunity to explore UT labs while working in one themselves on a research project of their choosing. Students also take Probability, Statistics, and Technical Writing to supplement their research endeavors. This camp is NOT for high school credit. 

ENGINEERING & COMPUTER SCIENCE CAMP

About the Prefreshman Engineering Program (PREP) - USA: 

UT PREP is a replication site of the Prefreshman Engineering Program-USA (PREP-USA). PREP-USA, under The UTSA Institute for P-20 Initiatives, is an academically rigorous mathematics-based summer enrichment program conducted at several college and university campuses across the nation. PREP-USA identifies middle and high school students who have an interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and helps prepare those students for success in advanced studies and careers by providing them with a challenging academic program that emphasizes the development of abstract reasoning and problem-solving skills and exposure to careers through career awareness speakers and field trips.

The original Prefreshman Engineering Program (PREP) was started in 1979 by UTSA mathematics professor Dr. Manuel P. Berriozábal. Seven years later, PREP expanded throughout the state of Texas and became known as Texas PREP, or TexPREP for short. In 1997, thanks to a grant from NASA, TexPREP continued to grow and expand across the nation and is now known simply as PREP-USA.

Participation in PREP-USA is open to anyone, but PREP-USA particularly targets students who are from traditionally underrepresented groups in STEM, including minorities, females, and low income students. PREP-USA’s goal is to increase the number of competently prepared students who ultimately pursue postsecondary studies and careers in STEM by stressing the development of abstract reasoning and problem-solving skills, as well as the application of this knowledge through coursework, team projects, class presentations, and examinations.
