STEM Boot Camp
Improving access by engaging incoming STEM majors
The STEM Boot Camp is a week-long camp that includes: lectures by Mason faculty; lab experiences; exams with advising on preparation and debriefing; group advising opportunities; career sessions; and the opportunity to meet other STEM students, before arriving to campus for the start of classes in August. The STEM Boot camp will be divided into a BIOL/CHEM track and a MATH track designed for MATH and Engineering majors.
The camp is residential and students are expected to stay in the dorms during the week. Students that participate in STEM camps, are also strongly encouraged to enroll in the associated University Transitions (UNIV 108; 0-1 credit) course for the fall semester. In this course you will continue to work with the same student cohort, and build the skills necessary to effectively transition to university life.
A number of scholarships are available for eligible students.
Space is limited, so register early! Students can take both camps (STEM Boot Camp and Math Readiness) and we have accommodations at Mason for the transition day.
Application form for 2018 is coming soon!
