As the summer begins, so do our summer science camps! Over the next 3 months, The Harris Foundation will be conducting these STEM based camps at 25 colleges and universities throughout the nation. I am planning to personally visit approximately 20 camps...my "summer vacation"! I will be joined at each university by our ExxonMobil Rock Stars of STEMTM.

 

Also, we have established a new partnership with the Boys Scouts of America (BSA) to create a new STEM program. Stay tuned to learn more.

 

Lastly, the Online Learning Center (OLC) is progressing toward an official rollout this month.

 

Thank you for your support as we continue to positively impact America's youth.
