Jenny Jeong, a student at A&M Consolidated Middle School in College Station, recently spent a week of her summer attending Rice University’s Say STEM Camp, hosted by The Tapia Center for Excellence and Equity. She was one of more than 300 students who participated in the camp.

Say STEM Camp, which is sponsored by ExxonMobil, is available to rising eighth- through 12th-graders and features a weeklong residential experience with a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curriculum. Campers experiment with hands-on STEM projects, like building miniature wind turbines out of household items. Students enhance their communication skills by learning how to simplify complicated STEM ideas via graphic drawings and an end-of-camp oral presentation — all while experiencing life on a college campus.
