Richland College has partnered with the Texas Workforce Commission to provide an introduction to a variety of careers and occupations in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). There are two STEM camps to choose from: June 15-28, 2011, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. or July 13-26, 2011, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
These free camps are geared toward students ages 14-16 interested in potential career paths in STEM fields. Enrollment is limited to 50 students per session who must be U.S. citizens or documented residents. Students accepted to the program will receive a scholarship from the Texas Workforce Commission to cover all costs of attendance.
During the two-week STEM camp, students will explore numerous career options, including:
• Biomedical Engineering
• CAD/CAM Manufacturing
• Computer Science
• Civil Engineering
• Digital Forensics
• Electrical Engineering
• Engineering Technology
• Mechanical Engineering
• Web Design/Multimedia
Students will participate in tours and attend seminars with Richland College experts in areas related to student success in higher education, such as financial aid, academic advising, career exploration and planning, learning support services, and student activities. Students will be presented with options and will then select a program track they wish to explore in greater detail for the remainder of the camp. They will work together along with Richland College faculty to complete an integrated project related to an overall camp theme.
