High school girls can discover opportunities in the fields of math, engineering and science in a week-long camp to be held this summer at the University of Missouri-Rolla.

The Summer "Solutions" camp will be held July 18-22 on the UMR campus. Sponsored by UMR and the University Transportation Center, this five-day camp will introduce participants to different engineering and science majors.

Using hands-on projects to experience what can be done with math and science, campers will interact with and learn from college students and professors, learn how to prepare for college, and enjoy summer socials.

Participants must be high school freshman and sophomore girls this fall or home-schooled girls ages 15-16. The registration fee is $100 and covers meals, activities and housing. The deadline for registration is Friday, July 1. Enrollment is limited to the first 50 participants to register.
