Wiley’s gearing up free summer math and science camp

Wiley StemWiley College’s STEM Camp, STEMulate!, a free summer STEM camp for incoming college freshmen, returns to Wiley College in July.

This camp will run for three weeks, from July 8-28, and targets future math or science majors who are interested in attending Wiley. The purpose of the camp is to give students a head start on subjects such as chemistry, biology, critical thinking, and especially math and scientific writing. Students will also have the opportunity to make connections with each other and with faculty before the school year begins.

The program will also include fun activities, including movie nights, games, and field trips. All expenses, including room and board and all camp activities, are covered by a grant awarded to Wiley College’s Division of Sciences from the National Science Foundation.

Last year, participants were able to visit the Michelson Museum of Art in Marshall and learned about the connections between the art exhibited there and science and math.

The college reports that students from last year experienced gains in their science classes during the Fall of 2017.

Graduating high school seniors who are interested in this opportunity should contact Dr. Stephanie Gorski at (903) 923-2485/sgorski@wileyc.edu or Dr. Brooke Woodard at (903) 927-3248/dbwoodard@wileyc.edu.
