The award is for $41,600.
Campbell's Summer Science and Mathematics Academy is designed to give up to 32 high school juniors and seniors a two-week campus experience studying the relationship between science, mathematics, technology and society. The academy, scheduled for July 12-23, is also intended to motivate the participants to pursue higher education and careers in science, mathematics and technology.
The two-week SSMA program will be held on the SWOSU campus with participants living in residence halls, eating in the cafeteria, and taking classes in lecture halls and laboratories. The participants will have access to SWOSU facilities and equipment at no charge. The students will engage in short courses of biology, chemistry, computer science, geology, space science, health, mathematics and physics. Students will have laboratory activities, field experiences and participate in a problem solving competition.
