Summer Programs at ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp

ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp organizes camps that take place throughout the U.S. and are FREE programs for middle school students designed to instill an excitement about engineering, science and technology.

The camps take place at colleges and universities from University of Alaska, Anchorage to Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts.

The curriculum is designed to be engaging – “Foodology: The Science of Food”, “Forensic Science” and “Aerospace and Avionics” are sample camp themes. Each camp draws from a unique population – some are open to all residents of the state, some to particular school districts. There is a map of the program locations and it contains information about the target student population of each location.
