UPDATE: Due to the spread of COVID-19, NC State has cancelled all university-related summer camps for Summer 2020. We are currently investigating the feasibility of operating the camp online, and will make a decision on that possibility in the coming days. Thank you for your interest!
Our free summer camp, themed “Exploring the Earth”, is a week-long day-camp held in June for high school students on NC State University’s campus (see map below). The aim of the camp is to make the geoscience fun, exciting and relevant while also raising student interest and awareness of potential geoscience majors and careers. Participating students will be exposed to research in earth science, marine science and atmospheric science. Camp counselors represent each of the three disciplines in the Department of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences (MEAS) at NC State. Students will participate in research activities with MEAS faculty and graduate students. Some of the activities will span multiple days in order to provide time for sampling, analysis, and discussion. Students will take local field trips throughout the week to make observations about natural points of interest. The weeklong experience will include collaboration and the development of a digital research poster to be presented to their peers, faculty, and graduate students. If you are interested in attending the “Exploring the Earth” summer camp, apply below. The application asks you to submit a one paragraph essay describing your reasons for wanting to attend the camp.
