Fun with Science Camp at Marshall University July 8 – July 13

 Summer Institute is fantastic! It's summer camp with a HSTA twist. Incoming freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors attend different institutes at colleges and universities across the state. Freshmen attend "Fun with Science," sophomores attend "Forensics Institute," juniors attend "Bio-Med," and seniors attend "Senior Camp."

 At Summer Institute you'll spend a week (or three, if you're a senior) taking classes, attending workshops, going on field trips, making friends, and having fun. You'll find out what it's like to live on a college campus. You'll learn skills you need for college. You'll get to know HSTA students from other parts of the state and you'll spend one-on-one time with HSTA teachers, field site coordinators (FSCs), faculty, staff, and mentors.

 Every HSTA student must attend at least two Summer Institutes to graduate from the program. The camps are free, and transportation to and from camp is provided.
