Program Summary: The North Carolina Mathematics and Science Education Network Pre-College Program (NC-MSEN PCP) at North Carolina State University (NCSU) has provided STEM enrichment to underserved middle and high school students for over 35 years. Each year, the program develops a summer academic program to provide STEM exposure and enrichment to students who live in central North Carolina.

MSEN is excited to offer (3) one-week 2022 Summer Scholars STEM Camps.

Now accepting applications for rising 7th – 12th grade students. Apply now for one, two, or all three camps.

June 20 – 24, 2022 – Space: The Final Frontier  

Students will engage in hands on learning experiences designed to investigate and explore the unique world of living in space, space travel, and exploration. Some activities include creating a solar water generator, pin hole camera, telescope and more.

  • Additionally,
    • Middle School students will take a math enrichment course that will help prepare them for math in the upcoming school year.
    • High School students will explore the fundamentals of collecting, analyzing and interpreting data in a course called data science. Data Science helps transform data into meaningful information that allows for more informed decisions.

June 27 – July 1, 2022 – Biomedical Engineering

  • Biomedical Engineering (BME) is a fast-growing, interdisciplinary field that integrates engineering, mathematics, medicine, and science to improve human health and quality of life. In partnership with the Biomedical Engineering Department at NCSU, students will learn about the various components of biomedical engineering and its applications through hands-on learning experiences.

Our camp is designed to provide STEM enrichment via fun, hands-on, critical thinking based challenges that will prepare our scholars for their futures in STEM.

July 5– July 8 & 11 – 15, 2022 – Math 

  • Mathematics is the gatekeeper for entrance into four year college/universities and for success in STEM. Due to the pandemic, students have substantial gaps in their learning. This camp will assist with these gaps in mathematics with a re-teaching in the following areas: functions & graphing, trigonometry, exponents/logarithms, calculator usage. This camp will help students who are preparing to enroll in Math 4, pre-calculus, or AP Calculus in the fall.

 

Who Should Apply

Our June STEM camps (space & biomedical) welcome underserved students as well as any students with a love for STEM and interested in the pursuit of four-year college/university study. The camp is open to current 6th through 11th graders.
