E3 Camp—Empowering Excellence Through Exploration - FREE summer camp for middle school students
Sister Anissa McLendon is a Teacher's Assistant in the Chapel Hill Carrboro City School system. She and a friend, Lee Moavenzadeh, who operates Kamal Academy, saw a need for middle school kids to be exposed to STEM programs.
The original one-week camp in the summer of 2018 for 15 students grew into a three-week camp for 30 students in 2019. It is entitled E3 Camp—Empowering Excellence Through Exploration. There is no charge for students to attend. E3 has received some funding from school system as well as space in Glenwood Elementary. This will only cover a fraction of the operating expenses.
Confirmed presenters include doctors, researchers, local fire department personnel and a least one military pilot who are coming free. Activities will include class instruction and field trips (one will be to NC A&T State University) which the students in the first camp loved.
The camp is short of funds to cover the whole three weeks and community donations are needed to ensure camp goes on.
Questions should be directed to Anissa or Lee.
