(May 12, 2004)--Are you looking for a summer activity that will be challenging and fun for your young student?

The UTSA Office of K-16 Initiatives and Honors College will sponsor three enrichment programs in June and July at the Downtown Campus. The programs are open on a first-come, first-serve basis to students from the Greater San Antonio school districts.

The summer camps, centered on developing interest in math, science and technology, will include activities to teach students about gravity, speed, surface tension and geographical positioning systems, among other topics.

The objectives of the summer programs are to provide leadership training, academic support and career exploration to maximize students' potential for success in college, promote positive communication skills and enhance decision-making skills.

The Science Explorer Summer Camp is 9 a.m.-noon, June 14-25. The camp for 30 students entering 4th and 5th grades costs $50.

The Masterminds program is set for 8:30 a.m.-noon, June 28-July 2. The program for 40 students entering 6th, 7th and 8th grades costs $75.

The Challenger program is 8 a.m.-noon, June 21-25. The program for 25 students entering 9th, 10th and 11th grades costs $75.

The Office of K-16 Initiatives and Honors College provides hands-on learning programs taught by education professionals and assisted by college students. The office provides academic enhancement, college information and community outreach to support and encourage the participation of all students, especially those from underserved and underrepresented populations.
