UT PREP Program

The University of Texas' UT PREP Program is a six-week summer camp for students currently in 6th or 7th grade who are even slightly interested in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. In their first year, students study advanced topics in Logic, Engineering, Problem Solving and College and Career Readiness. Ideally, after graduating from PREP 1 the first summer, they return for the following three summers to study topics ranging from statistics to computer science. By the end of their four years, these students are ready to take internships, enroll in dual-credit courses and take AP classes, including high school calculus -- all while earning credit toward their high-school STEM endorsement each summer.

AISD has offered transportation from some schools (specific sites yet to be determined), and grant funding is such that the entire six-week camp is FREE to qualifying low-income kids (scholarships are approved weekly from completed applications, and, of course, there are paid seats, too).

This is a great opportunity for students and families. Complete the registration at the link below. The deadline is March 1, but spots fill quickly. To learn more and to register in English or Spanish, visit https://outreach.uteach.utexas.edu/summer-camps.
