STEM Boot Camp
August 11-19, 2019
Improving access by engaging incoming STEM majors
This Boot Camp is available to all students interested in STEM. Before classes start in August, this week-long residential camp welcomes incoming students with lab experiences, exam preparation, and lectures by Mason faculty. Students attend advising and career sessions, while working and living with other Mason STEM accepted freshmen. The Boot Camp has two available tracks: biology/chemistry and math/physical sciences/engineering. Note that these tracks are appropriate for all science, math, and engineering majors, not just those in biology, chemistry, or mathematics.
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 students will continue to work with their camp cohort, and build the skills necessary to effectively transition to university life.
Space is limited so apply early! Students can take both camps (STEM Boot Camp and Math Readiness) and we have accommodations at Mason for the transition day. Note that there is a single application for both camps.
Math Readiness Camp: $425
STEM Boot Camp: $600
For students attending both camps and staying the night at Mason between camps (on 08/10/19): $75
