Mobile Science and Engineering Camps Since rural students have less access and opportunities to engage in STEM activities the Mobile Science & Engineering Camps were created. Small groups (3-4) of college students travel throughout Oregon to deliver 2-day hands-on STEM camps to middle-school students. The goal is to create interest for rural and under-represented youth in STEM careers and post-secondary education. Summer Engineering, Science Jean Garcia-Chitwood:
