Pre-College Programs

Summer Camps

Each program fosters creative thinking, inspires curiosity, and supports students' development of science learning

The UMD-MRSEC summer camps were established in 2001. The camps provide a venue to share cutting-edge science and technology, and to generate interest among budding young scientists. The camps also strive to build confidence in studentsí abilities in and perception of science and engineering. The camps are designed with teachers to meet STEM curriculum needs and standards, and to build appreciation for science and engineering. Students from partner schools and homeschool programs attend. High school camps include specific curriculum goals that are incorporated into studentsí fall semester learning and final semester evaluation. Camps offered during summer 2013 are listed below.
