NSU to offer STEM camps in June


Northwestern State University’s Office of Electronic and Continuing Education will host  STEM camps this summer in partnership with Young Scholars, a Shreveport education company that specializes in STEM programs. Classes will include leadership development, forensic science and engineering design challenge.

The program is designed to provide students with exposure to a variety of STEM subjects while exercising problem solving skills, working in groups to complete hands-on projects and learning about career options in these fields.

“Classes are led by highly skilled STEM professionals or educators with expertise in the given field, so students are sure to gain applicable skills in a specialized environment,” said Christina Washington, founder and executive director of Young Scholars. “Classes are designed to be fun and engaging so that students have a quality experience.”

Washington is an electrical engineer, physicist and author whose goal is to increase participation in STEM fields.

The program schedule is leadership development on June 4-8, forensic science on June 11-15 and engineering design challenge on June 25-29.  Visit checkout.nsula.edu for more information about the summer program or to register.  You may also find out more information by visiting YoungScholarsEC.com/nsu.
