Posted Date: 06/12/2017
Paris High School students (from left) Asher Andoe, Alexsandrah Clement, and Robert Mooney received scholarships from the Texas Workforce Commission for a two week residential Physics camp at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas.
They completed an application and received nominations from their chemistry and physics teachers. Selection was based on passion for physics and potential to be a successful future physics major.
The camp provides 32 high achieving math and science students with an opportunity to do in-depth study, including hands on activities and research in one of five Physics enrichment areas with a Tarleton faculty member.
Students will learn about career opportunities in Physics and other STEM related fields and learn modeling and construction techniques. Along with experiencing university life and interacting with other bright high school and university students interested in physics, they will visit a nuclear power plant and other industrial sites.
