Getting Younger Students Wrapped up in STEM

Unique k-12 Opportunities

A number of camps, competitions and campus days are available for students to participate in at the University of Memphis. Offerings include general science, computer science, STEM and engineering. We are constantly looking for new opportunities for students K-12 that are being offered on the campus so this site changes frequently.

Please be aware that these activity links are maintained  and updated by the professors/departments in charge of the respective program. CRISTAL posts their links but is not responsible for content. Links are typically updated in March and April each year.
