2024 STARS Summer Science Camps

We are no longer accepting applications for our 2024 STARS Summer Science Camps. 

STARS (Science Teacher Access to Resources at Southwestern) was developed in 1991 to improve the quality of science education in North Central Texas by making UT Southwestern Medical Center’s vast educational resources available to middle and high school science teachers.

Since its inception, STARS has grown to serve more than 25,000 teachers and an estimated 120,000 students in 4,500 schools in the Dallas/Fort Worth and surrounding areas. The scope of STARS has steadily expanded to include more than 20 programs and projects, which are available free to teachers and students in Texas.


  • Broaden the knowledge base of science teachers
  • Increase science awareness
  • Provide instructional aids
  • Provide ongoing support for science teachers and students
  • Stimulate an appreciation of health-related careers

Core funding for STARS is provided by the state of Texas.
