The PIPES: Possibilities in Postsecondary Education project in the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences held its annual Summer Camp the week of June 4, 2018. Students from Campbell and Union counties were invited to experience life at the University of Tennessee including visits to the science and engineering labs. Students from tenth- and eleventh-grades enrolled in camp have the opportunity to explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Medical Science) careers and become college aware.
The PIPES project is funded by a Science Education Partnership Award from National Institutes of Health. The project is directed by Melinda Gibbons, Educational Psychology & Counseling along with Erin Hardin, Psychology. Graduate students and other key personnel help make the camp possible.
