The NASA MUREP Aerospace Academy program at Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) is collaborating with NEAAAT to offer four satellite, non-residential, aerospace academy camps on ECSU campus. These camps will draw students from eight neighboring counties. Camps are only open to NEAAAT students.

The Minority University Research and Education Project will adopt a well-established NASA STEM curriculum with problem-based learning at its core charged with the commitment to increase STEM exposure of underserved and underrepresented students in grades K– 12. This week —long structured STEM enrichment program engages middle school students in activities that improve their analytical skills within science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Participants will develop and strengthen the skills and knowledge needed for success in STEM studies and STEM Careers.

This year’s theme “A Mission to Mars” will use STEM skills to design, construct, and simulate a virtual trip to Mars utilizing activities through both individual and group work with cooperative learning that reinforces hands-on and classroom learning.
