About the Camp:
The STEM Summer Institute is a week-long summer educational program for talented high school students (AGES 16-18) who are interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics fields. Students who participate in this program will spend one week on the campus of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi building knowledge in underwater robotics, interacting with other talented teens, and learning from experienced university professors. The program includes hands-on activities, guest speakers, and first hand experience in our engineering laboratories.
There is a $35 non-refundable application fee. The cost of the camp is $500. Scholarships may be available for participants who express need based on merit or financial need.
Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is a unique campus, in that it is located on its own private island, just minutes away from miles of Gulf Coast beaches. With palm trees lining the pathways throughout the 240-acre campus, the nearby natural wetlands, and the beach along Ocean Drive, TAMUCC is a great environment for living and learning. The campus is located at 6300 Ocean Drive, Corpus Christi, Texas, 78412.
Campers will be housed on the TAMUCC campus in residence halls which offer spectacular bay views. Campers will need to bring their own linens, pillow, and detergent.
