Southern University and A&M College (SUBR) has partnered with Rice University to promote careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) among students.

The partnership will involve a summer camp from June 17 to 21, 2024, for students from sixth to twelfth grade. The camp will focus on teaching students about the capture of CO2 and its transportation to designated sites with suitable geological properties for permanent, underground storage.

Hands-on STEM projects will include building a model of an underground reservoir using household items and demonstrating how carbon can be injected and stored in the reservoirs using water and vegetable oil.

The 2024 summer camp will integrate Rice’s Tapia STEM Camp curriculum into SUBR’s program, and ExxonMobil employees will engage with students throughout the week.

The camp aims to help 115 middle and high school students learn about carbon dioxide (CO2) and the importance of its effective management in a lower-carbon future.

The Tapia STEM Camps, named after Dr. Richard Tapia of Rice University, are designed to promote STEM excellence and equity among middle and high school students, inspiring them to pursue STEM subjects.

The camp will provide students with a better understanding of CO2 — its origins, impact, and the importance of implementing carbon capture and storage to reduce climate change. Additionally, the program will focus on developing public speaking and collaboration skills as students work together to present their final projects.

The Tapia STEM camp curriculum is designed by a team led by Rice University’s Tapia Center for Excellence and Equity in Education Interim Executive Director Paul Hand.

It emphasizes effective communication and teamwork, essential skills for a successful STEM career. In addition to developing public speaking and collaboration skills, Tapia camp participants will have the opportunity to engage with diverse experts from ExxonMobil who will share their experiences and work in the field.

Tennessee State University is offering over 20 summer camps for all ages to keep children engaged for the next three months.

Dr. Lin Li, the interim dean of the College of Engineering, mentioned that the college will host several STEM camps, including the Aim High Flight Academy for the first time.

TSU is the first HBCU to host such a summer camp. The Department of Industrial and Applied Technologies hosted the camp from June 1-14. The engineering camp is designed for high school students and prepares them for a career in the energy sector.

The U.S. Department of Energy Clean Energy Education Prize Inspire Track selected TSU to host the camp that highlights energy and engineering topics to students. This camp will run from June 9-23.

Among the many exciting camps returning this year is the Verizon Innovative Learning STEM Achievers Program for grades 6-8 students. The camp allows them to interact with technology through on-campus summer intensive courses and year-round mentoring, providing students with firsthand experiences and creating a more diverse pipeline for future careers in STEM. The TSU Summer Technology Immersion Program for Middle School Students is also returning this year.

The two-week, non-residential summer camp teaches middle school students about 3D printing, coding/programming, engineering design, artificial intelligence, and more.

Alabama A&M students recently achieved a significant milestone by participating in the Boeing + Thurgood Marshall College Fund HBCU Immersion experience in St. Louis.

Five exceptional students from AAMU were able to explore the myriad of possibilities for future careers in Business, IT, and Engineering in the Aerospace industry.

The Boeing HBCU Immersion is a highly competitive program that brings the brightest freshmen and sophomores from Boeing’s partner Historically Black Colleges and Universities together for an all-inclusive, assimilated introduction to The Boeing Company.

Facilitated by Boeing Leaders and HBCU Strategy Team, the Boeing HBCU Immersion provides students with increased knowledge and awareness of Boeing products and services.

Five selected students represented AAMU: Zachary Cooper, Gabriel Chambers, Kristin Taylor, Rae Bell, and Bryson Hannah, who have made us all proud with their achievements.
