P-20 Initiatives hosts Third Annual Rackspace Summer Institute
The Office of P-20 Initiatives hosted the third annual Rackspace Summer Institute July 12 – July 23, 2010 at the UTSA DT campus.
This year's participants, 40 high school students and 20 middle school students, were treated to two weeks of intense SAT test preparation, interactive presentations by representatives from various colleges and departments from across the UTSA community and a trip to the NASA space center in Houston Texas.
Participants were chosen to attend based on their application, which included a teacher or counselor recommendation letter and an essay.
Rackspace Data Hosting Corp generously underwrote the total cost of the camp.
