Oklahoma Higher Education Campus E-Clips sponsored by the Communicators Council

May 2011

Summer Academies

Multiple Campuses

Middle and high school students can spend time at an Oklahoma college or university this summer and experience life on campus while discovering the worlds of aeronautics, engineering, environmental conservation, forensic science and much more at the free 2011 Summer Academies in Math, Science and Technology.

The free academies, sponsored by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, are open to upcoming eighth- through 12th-graders. Each academy explores the latest trends in math, science and technology by using fun, hands-on activities and innovative software as students experiment both in the classroom and outdoors. Many academies also include field trips to some of the state’s top companies, science facilities and museums.

The academies are being offered at 16 of Oklahoma’s college and university campuses in May, June and July. Twenty-three different academies will be offered statewide and last from four days to two weeks. Some academies require students to live in the campus residence halls, while others require that students travel to and from campus each day.

Academy descriptions and contact information are available at www.okhighered.org/summer-academies. Students can also get information from their school counselors or by calling (800) 858-1840.
