Students engage in an array of extracurricular activities during the non-class time.
Participants
Each campsite will have 50% female and 50% male participants representing each targeted grade level. Through its innovative, student-centered, inquiry-based curriculum, campers will complete a minimum of 54 hours of advanced STEM study taught by highly qualified educators from area school districts and university faculty.

The STEMPREP Project is a summer vehicle for producing multiple generations of minority researchers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) and Medicine. It is a revolutionary training paradigm which utilizes an early start model (7th grade) for a national pool of minority high achievers, a longitudinal training continuum (10 years) and a multi-institutional mentorship approach (13 sites). For the last 24 years, the STEMPREP Project has employed this innovative training paradigm to create a cadre of STEM trainees eligible for post-baccalaureate programs at the nation’s elite graduate schools, medical schools and engineering schools. Three summer residential programs under the STEMPREP Project have generated a pipeline of advanced trainees: the Physician Scientist Training Program (PSTP) was designed to produce candidates for M.D. programs in academic medicine and M.D./Ph.D. dual degree programs; the Basic Scientist Training Program (BSTP) was designed to produce candidates for Ph.D. programs in the biomedical sciences; the Technology, Engineering & Math Program (TEMP) was designed to produce computer scientists and engineers, as well as candidates for Ph.D. programs in bio-informatics, bio-engineering, and bio-statistics. The STEMPREP Project has become one of the most successful training initiatives in U.S. history: 100% of our trainees attend college, 100% graduate from college, 92% complete the 10-year regimen and 83% of our college seniors matriculate into post-baccalaureate educational programs in STEM.   I am attaching the application and brochure.  The application for admission is due January 31, and applicants should be A students for the last three years. Fee waivers can be obtained for the SSAT national exam via our office.  Teachers, I hope you will ask your students to view the three 4-minute videos and article on the Project at:www.smu.edu/stemprep
 
Our target population is those racial groups underrepresented in the STEM arena: African Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Hawaiians, Native Americans, and Mainland Puerto Ricans. Extensive details about the Project can be found on our website: www.thedistancelearningcenter.org
