Texas GEAR UP in Action: Humanities Summer Camp

TXGU Grant: Texas A&M International University – GEAR UP IV “Creating a Vision”

Big Picture: 

Texas A&M International University's GEAR UP IV Humanities Summer Camp is definitely one for the history books. Combining important topics students will be learning about in the upcoming school year (this time around it's U.S. history) with college-prep activities, educators at the summer camp are helping kids take a hands-on approach to personal and professional empowerment. Held on TAMIU's beautiful campus in Laredo, these students are getting the extra edge in school and a taste of what it's like to learn in a real college classroom. (Spoiler: They love it!)
