MSMS hosting online enrichment camps this summer

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) – Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science (MSMS) is launching its first online enrichment camp this summer.

The school, which is located on the Mississippi University for Women (MUW) campus, typically hosts two residential camps each summer. The camps are for rising 7th and 8th-grade students and rising 9th and 10th-grade students.

However, because of the coronavirus pandemic, things have changed this year.

Full STEAM Ahead: MSMS Online Enrichment Camp will be held from July 6 to July 17.

By moving the camps online, the camps are no longer limited to just Mississippi residents, the schools announced.

The camps allow students to delve into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and fine arts concepts through interactive, hands-on lessons, virtual meetings and discussion boards from the comfort of their own home.

Students must register by May 20. For more information, open this link.
