Missouri University of Science and Technology will host four in-person summer camps in addition to its already announced virtual camps. All S&T campers can practice team-building and social skills while learning what it takes to have a career in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.

Each camp has either an age requirement or a grade-level requirement. Potential campers must reach this age by the start of the camp or enter the required grade for the fall 2021 school year. For additional camp details, visit summer.mst.edu.

The following camps will be held in-person at S&T:
