Camp STEM is southern West Virginia’s premiere camp for high school students interested in science, technology, engineering and math fields. The week-long camp is held on WVU Tech's campus in Beckley, West Virginia, and features a variety of STEM classes, special projects and field trips all specifically chosen to create a fun and engaging learning environment.
During Camp STEM, you’ll meet professors who are experts in their fields and college students studying the STEM fields that interest you. You’ll attend classes, conduct experiments and learn about the exciting careers waiting for men and women in STEM fields.
COSTThe camp is $600 for the week and includes all meals, residence hall room, t-shirts, camp activities and field trips. Raleigh County Board of Education has provided scholarships for those who are Raleigh County public school students and can attend for free. Other scholarships are available (thanks to our generous industry sponsors). Those interested in those scholarships should contact Dr. Nathan Galinsky directly at 304-929-1651 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students will be eating in the WVU Tech Bears Den, which offers a wide range of delicious food options.
Camp STEM’s instructors are excellent teachers who are experts in the fields of engineering, mathematics, the basic sciences and forensic investigation. Our instructors will guide campers through various experiments, provide detailed lectures and demonstrations, and attend field trips. All of our teachers are encouraging and will provide guidance and advice as campers explore STEM fields.
Camp STEM’s counselors are upper-class WVU Tech students who are majoring in biology, chemistry, engineering, engineering technology or mathematics. Our counselors are selected for their academic excellence and experience as camp counselors, resident assistants, or high school outreach activities coordinators.
Camp STEM Counselors live in the residence halls with you, eat with you in the Bears Den, help you with your projects and talk to you about their majors and what it’s like to study STEM fields in college.
