MTR runs two summer educational camps primarily for Memphis students living in under-resourced communities. Each summer we seek motivated college underclassmen to help run these camps and motivated students to come and challenge themselves academically!
MTR Camp is a summer academic camp for elementary students in MTR partner neighborhoods: a summer learning adventure that combines math, reading, extracurriculars, field trips and fun. Learning is fun at MTR Camp and a key goal is cultivating a love of learning at a young age. MTR hires approximately 22 college interns each year to run this 5-week educational academic camp.
STEM Discovery Camp is a 5-week summer mathematics camp for rising 7th graders to discover STEM fields and be pushed in their math understanding like never before. Math is the key that unlocks the door to so many STEM fields, and this camp launches students on the pathway to having access to any STEM career they desire. MTR seeks underclassmen persons of color with an interest in STEM education to join the Marjorie Lee Browne STEM Education Fellowship serving as TAs and counselors at this summer math camp.
Will you join us to inspire, encourage, and support underserved middle-school students to become scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and computer scientists?
