STARS Summer Science Camps

2024 STARS Summer Science Camps

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

The STARS Summer Science Camps began in 2008 with a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Education Pre-College Division. The camps are designed to provide high school science teachers with experience and increase their confidence in laboratory exercises, and to give a head-start to students who will take the corresponding science classes the following school year.

For TeachersFor Students


Two master teachers, 10 teachers, and 30 students participate in each camp. The staff of the Science Teacher Access to Resources at Southwestern (STARS) Program designs each camp and provides overall supervision.

The camps will be held on our campus at UT Southwestern. A specific location will be provided to those students who are selected to attend each camp.  

All camps provide breakfast and lunch for all participants. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from the UT Southwestern campus. Learn more about the summer camps or contact STARS at Email.
