STEM-H Camps for Rising 4th- 12th Graders

Posted on June 07, 2017

By Holly Walker

Do you have a son or daughter or know a young person with an interest in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and health care (STEM-H)? If so, now’s your chance to sign them up for or tell them and their families about the STEM-H camps being held at John Tyler Community College this summer.

For rising 10th through 12th graders, the college has created a series of one- and two-week STEM-H camps. Exploratory Trails in information technology (IT), life sciences and engineering are one week in length and will give students an inside look at these subject areas through hands-on activities and experiments. Those who want a more in-depth look at STEM-H are invited to participate in one of Tyler’s Experience Trails. These two-week camps focus on IT, health care and basic precision machining. All Experience Trails are held in the college’s high-tech labs, and participants can earn an industry certification.

To sign up for one of these camps, go to, and click on the trail of interest.
