Summer Math Camp
Thanks to a generous grant provided by Alcoa Foundation, UHV will hold a Math Summer Camp for high school students. The Math Summer Camp will introduce students to theoretical concepts in advanced mathematics, including Euclidean and non-Euclidean Geometry, Number Theory, optimization, graphs, etc.
The camp will be a 4-day-long event (June 25-28) in UHV University Center, and some students will have the chance to stay in the residence halls on the UHV campus. This will give students an opportunity to experience life on campus, with activities provided for students in the afternoons and evening after summer camp lets out. Some students will also be accepted to attend the camp without staying in the dorms.

Afternoon activities end by 4pm, commuters should be picked up in the University Center building, a shuttle will take the other students to the dorms. Campus tour or evening activities will be scheduled.
Wednesday and Thursday: Starting at 9am, students will learn and practice advanced mathematical concepts in the morning and afternoon. Afternoon activities end by 4pm, commuters should be picked up in the University Center building, a shuttle will take the other students to the dorms.
