Six E Prep scholars were selected to attend the ExxonMobil Bernard Harris STEM summer camp. This two week, residential camp will be hosted at Central State University this June. Our scholars had to undergo a very selective application process in which only 48 students are selected from the entire state of Ohio. Their entirecost of the trip including: camp, food and lodging are covered by this scholarship. This year’s focus will be on aviation science.

Our scholars attending the ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camps will test and develop their engineering and science prowess during daily activities that emphasize development of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills.
“The Harris Foundation is proud to offer kids a rewarding way to beat the summer brain drain,” said Dr. Bernard Harris, Jr., founder and president, The Harris Foundation. “We believe providing students with access to fun learning opportunities, inspirational role models and gifted teachers can help encourage them to pursue higher education.”
Dr. Harris was the first African American astronaut in outerspace.
Students live on campus during the two-week camp and participate in classes taught by university faculty, secondary teachers and local STEM professionals. As part of the interactive, inquiry-based curriculum, campers also enjoy the added benefit of exploring local museums, nature centers and ecosystems, allowing them to discover science at work in their communities.
