This summer, Arthur is playing host to a hands-on science camp that attracts students of color from around the region to Arthur’s campus. The camp is one of 12 in the country run by the National Society of Black Engineers, and seeks to give interested students a chance to learn from mentors with similar backgrounds. Most of the camp instructors are college and graduate students looking to give back with their summer vacations.
The NBSE selected Arthur to host the camp because of its strong STEM programming and new efforts to expand its STEM offerings. You can read more about the camp in an article from the Philadelphia Tribune.
