LUBBOCK – The Dunbar Junior High Math and Science Academy has partnered with the Office
of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
to host a week-long summer science camp June 27-July 1.
The Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs hopes to further strengthen its
Health Science Exploration Program, an initiative to create interest and awareness
in the health sciences for children in grades kindergarten through 12th. Twenty-five
Dunbar students will be welcomed to campus to experience its world-class facilities
and work with students, faculty and staff from the schools of Medicine, Nursing and
Allied Health Sciences.
Camp organizers Dana Owens, science and engineering instructor at Dunbar, and Richard
Anthony Baker, director of outreach and enrichment programs for the Health Sciences
Center, planned the event in the hope that it will entice students to the fascinating
world of science and higher education. “It’s an invaluable partnership,” Baker said,
noting that this is the first time the Health Sciences Center will have the opportunity
to be a part of Dunbar’s summer science camp.
The student campers will spend two days at Dunbar Junior High School, and will be
on the Health Sciences Center campus all day June 30. The students also will participate
in several field trips.
The Health Science Exploration Program is a collaborative partnership between 19 community
entities to increase educational opportunities for disadvantaged and underrepresented
