The American Legion Auxiliary Girls State program: • Develops leadership and pride in American citizens. • Educates citizens about our system of government. • Instills a greater understanding of American traditions. • Stimulates a desire to maintain our democratic government processes within our republic.
For the eighth consecutive year, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) will be hosting the 2016 Exxon Mobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp from July 10 - 22, 2016. This camp is available at 9 other universities nationwide and is the only camp site in Arkansas.
We will select 36 rising 6th through 8th graders with at least a "B" average in math and science. There will also be an equal distribution of boys and girls and across all grade levels. The program supports historically underserved and underrepresented students with limited opportunities. This includes students from rural areas and or school districts where opportunities are limited. ALL interested students should apply!
The program is free and residential with a nurse on staff and certified instructors and counselors. All personnel are required to pass background checks.
If you have students who would benefit from this once in a lifetime immersion in STEM, please fill out an application, which is located here: http://www.
Applications must be postmarked by May 2 and parents will receive notification by May 27.
