The Wilson College of Textiles at NC State is excited to launch TEXplore, a summer enrichment and Saturday academy program for middle school students.
- Engage in fun, hands-on lab experiments and classroom experiences.
- Learn more about the diverse textile-related STEM programs.
- Explore textile companies through field trips.
- Spend a week on NC State’s campus during the summer while learning from our world-class faculty.
The purpose of TEXplore is to provide under-represented minority students in grades 6-8, residing in Gaston County, with the opportunity to expand their interest in STEM as it relates to textiles: engineering, chemistry, technology, medical sciences, supply chain and more.
Applications due Nov. 15, 2022.
There is no cost to attend this program as it is funded through a grant from Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
