For Students

Would you like to get a head start in learning about the science classes that you will be taking in the Fall? The STARS Science Camps will be offered during the Summer of 2022. The Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy and Physiology, and Biotechnology camps meet for ten days. STARS also hosts a five day Middle School science camp for current 6th and 7th grade students.

At this time, our plan is to hold our camps in-person. The camps consist of laboratory and classroom activities, and virtual tour lectures by UT Southwestern staff and faculty guest speakers.

Any or all of the following may be considered as positive factors in selecting participants for our camps:

  • Evidence of strong academic achievement, especially in math and science
  • Foster youth
  • Students in the Dallas ISD or neighborhoods surrounding UT Southwestern
  • Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch 
  • Membership in one or more of the following groups, which are considered underrepresented in the sciences:
    • Traditionally underrepresented minority students (Alaska Native, Black/African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American Indian, Native Pacific Islander)
    • Students who would be the first in their families to attend college
    • Applicants with any limitations that place them in an underrepresented group
  • Students from previous STARS camps
  • Please note that these are positive factors and not requirements for participation

There is no fee for attending the camps, but attendance every day is mandatory. Please make sure there are no schedule conflicts (vacation, other camps, school events, etc.) that would prohibit attendance.
