About The Harris Foundation

We seek STEM mentors to come out and speak to our middle school campers about STEM careers/professions and real-world experiences at our ten summer camp locations in eight states (TX, OK, PA, NC, NY, NJ, AR, AK). The ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp (EMBHSSC) is a two-week residential camp hosted at colleges and universities across the nation. In the summer of 2017, The Harris Foundation (THF), in partnership with the ExxonMobil Foundation, will sponsor 10 residential camps during the months of June-August. Each camp will provide an average of 40 rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students the opportunity to enhance their proficiency in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) while living on a college campus - all at no cost to the child or family. **Dr. Bernard A. Harris, Jr. is a former NASA astronaut and the first African-American to walk in space. THF is a 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization based in Houston, TX and was founded by Dr. Harris in 1998.
