Montana State University will host a free, five-day summer camp for middle school students interested in science, technology, engineering and math.

MSU Explore: Earth and Space Science Camp will be held June 26 through July 1 at the Bozeman campus. It will introduce students to STEM careers and role models, as well as to college life through classes and activities.

The camp is aimed at students who haven’t yet participated in a camp like this, such as students who'd be the first in their family to attend college, students from low-income families or communities, or youth who live in rural areas with fewer STEM opportunities.

All camp expenses are covered, including room and board, activities and student materials.

Students will live in the MSU residence halls and choose three classes to attend all week, covering topics such as making a nature survival kit, building and launching rockets, engineering a Mars base, protecting Montana’s rivers and forests and exploring black holes. Evening activities will include sports, movies, scavenger hunts and social events.

The camp is hosted by MSU Extended University in collaboration with NASA Science Mission Directorate Education and the Northwest Earth and Space Sciences Pipeline program.

Applications are due April 22. Two adult recommendations are required.
