GearHeadsSA: Research Academy

Explore the World of STEM at UIW!

Beginning in Summer 2021, GearHeads San Antonio for High School will provide Brainpower Connection students with an opportunity to experience STEM in a college environment and to meet and work with university faculty. The camp will follow a similar format to our Upward Bound camps, such that all students will participate in morning labs in four major STEM fields, and juniors and seniors have the opportunity to participate in an afternoon research project relevant to real-world research, such as wind power engineering, human body biochemistry, robotics, and more.

Camp Participants Will Receive:

  • Hands-on lab experiences
  • Research experience
  • Team activities
  • Science experiments
  • Opportunities to meet and work with UIW professors and researchers
  • Insights on college and STEM careers
  • Experience in STEM fields which may include Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Engineering, Environmental Science, Meteorology, and Physics.
