First black man to walk in space leading Weatherford science camp

Weatherford_ Bernard Harris, a former NASA astronaut and the first black man to walk in space, will join 50 middle-school children from Western Oklahoma in participating in a science experiment dealing with buoyancy while they attend the "ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp".

The ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp (BHSSC) is a free, academic program of The Harris Foundation.   The foundation takes an active role in shaping education in students in middle and high school through college. Science, mathematics and engineering are critical to society's infrastructure for the 21st century. Preserving that future requires an investment in our youth today.  

This camp program was developed as a collaborative effort of the Harris Foundation, the Houston Independent School District, the University of Houston (UH) and the Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU), designed to support economically and/or socially disadvantaged students with limited opportunities.  

This year the foundation has teamed with the ExxonMobil Foundation to increase the impact and expand the reach of the program to twenty campuses nationally.  

Location: Southwestern Oklahoma State University, Memorial Student Union Center, Second Floor, Weatherford
