"We're working with several STEM related experts from UCO, OSBI, Benham structural engineers, the OKC Police and Fire departments and the Oklahoma County Sheriff's department," says MaryAnn Eckstein, director of media for the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. "Students will also learn how careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics were critical in the rescue, recovery, investigation and justice after the Oklahoma City bombing. The camp might even spark a career idea or academic journey for the students."

The STEM camp is a week-long, half-day event at the Museum, from 1-5 pm, July 11-15. Cost is $99. The age range is for students entering the 6th-8th grades. For more information and to register, visit okcnm.org.
