Cortez students to attend CSU camp

Colorado State University is sponsoring eight students from Cortez Middle School to attend a Math in Action in Computer Science educational summer camp in Fort Collins.The camp is designed to share hands-on math concepts that students can apply in computer science, with the goal that students will gain an interest in math and science and successfully graduate from high school, while eyeing college educations in math and science. The camp will include sessions about how to apply to college and financial-aid opportunities. It also will give students an opportunity to meet with CSU Native American students in the Colleges of Natural Sciences and Engineering, who will discuss pursing a career in the fields of STEM, or Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.The camp is part of a $400,000 National Science Foundation Early CAREER award received earlier this year.
