University Summer Camp Student Track
The goals of the Summer Camp at NDSU include introducing tribal college students to STEM disciplines and career opportunities, exposing them to city and campus life, attracting them to four year STEM programs, and engaging tribal high school and college faculty in career improvement and lesson development. This two-week camp is usually offered in the first two weeks of June each year. The camp has two tracks, tribal college student track, and instructor and teacher track.
Camp activities include laboratory visits and demonstration projects in such areas as agriculture and biosystems engineering, chemistry and biochemistry, civil and environmental engineering, climatology, computer science, core labs, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering, pharmaceutical sciences and physics. Field visits, mathematics lessons, and project work are other activities included. University instructors introduce science, math, and engineering disciplines and career opportunities. Students present their research projects on the closing day. Opportunities for recreation and social interaction provided for the students to experience campus and city life at NDSU and UND added fun to the rigor of the camp.
