Equinor and UH teachHOUSTON are partnering to bring camp opportunities to students entering grades 6–8 in the fall.

This initiative is a free program for underserved and at-risk students who would otherwise not be able to attend a camp. All campers have been selected by their district to participate. Each camp has been limited to 20 campers in order to implement high-level support for summer STEM learning in response to COVID.
