    The ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp (EMBHSSC) is organized to provide activities, experiments, projects, and field experiences for students entering 6th, 7th, or 8th grade in the fall of 2015. The camp promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and supports historically underserved and underrepresented students with limited opportunities. Students attend the camp free of charge. Students currently in grade 5, 6, or 7 who have an interest in science and mathematics, at least a B average in science and mathematics courses and a passing score on the state's standardized science and mathematics tests are eligible to apply. Immediate family members of the university faculty and staff, EMBHSSC camp staff and ExxonMobil employees are not eligible.

    The two-week, all expenses paid, on-campus experience, is geared toward developing leadership skills and interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines. SLU's camp, "Aerospace and Avionics," is designed to introduce students to the field of aviation and incorporates each aspect of STEM.

    Students live on campus during the camp and participate in classes taught by university faculty, secondary teachers and local STEM professionals. As part of the interactive, inquiry-based curriculum, campers also enjoy the added benefit of exploring local museums, nature centers and ecosystems, allowing them to discover science at work in their communities.

    This program is free; however, students are chosen based on the quality of their personal statement and letter of recommendation. St. Louis Metropolitan residents only.
