STEM Events at UHV
The University of Houston-Victoria is proud to provide the local and regional community with attractive, inspiring, and developmental programs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) targeting middle school and high school students.
Our programs span the year with many activities offering fun and engaging hands on workshops for students. Our main goal is for students to share the creativity of math and computing and unlock their hidden potential for becoming innovators of new science and technologies.
During April or May of each year, UHV holds the Math and Robotics Awareness Day Event. At this event students will have the opportunity to compete in Math and Computer Science Competitions and win trophies and prizes. They will also attend activities which will give them an opportunity to explore college and career opportunities in the STEM fields.
UHV also has a semester-long robotics, programming and simulations course/research project for high school students. Students who participate in the spring semester will be invited to demonstrate their projects at the Math and Robotics Awareness Day event hosted at UHV.
Three STEM summer camps are available for high school and middle school students; Math Summer Camp, Robotics Summer Camp, and Texas Women in Computing Summer Camp. During the Math Summer Camp, students learn advanced mathematics with hands on activities. The Digital Simulation and Robotics Summer Camp introduces students to the basic concepts in robotics, simulation and engineering. The Texas Women in Computing Summer Camp provides female middle school students with an increased interest and participation in computing, advanced knowledge in computer science concepts, a foundation of computational thinking skills, and other skills that will increase future career opportunities.
Due to COVID-19, the events have been limited. Only the after school activity will be held in a virtual setting. Please clikc on "After School Events" to view more deatils
