Tennessee Outdoors Youth Summit

Teaching the next generation about the exciting world of outdoor recreation and fundamentals.

If you had to make a list of skills essential to outdoor lovers, what would be on it? Most likely you’d put down camping and hunting, which of course includes things like marksmanship, turkey calling, antler scoring, archery, wilderness surviva, fishing, boat driving, plant identification, and photography. Now that’s quite a list! But those are only a few of the activities taught at the Tennessee Outdoors Youth Summit.

The ninth annual event will be July 15 – 20, 2018, for high school students from across Tennessee. This week-long summer camp, hosted by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency in cooperation with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation, is a way to teach the next generation about the exciting world of outdoor recreation.

We are currently in the process of re-envisioning our programs, and we will not offer our Engineering VOLunteer for Rising Ninth Graders (eVOL9) and High School Introduction to Engineering Systems for Eleventh Graders (HITES11) programs in the summer of 2018.

 

Our mission is to provide students who show an interest in engineering studies an early exposure to, and preparation for, scientific study and research. Hands-on activities will spark an interest in the world of engineering and allow students to explore career opportunities. Throughout the program, participants will be challenged to apply what they have learned in engineering competitions. All applications must be received by their deadlines. For more information, please visit our website athttp://www.engr.utk.edu/diversity/pre-college/.

We encourage your participation and support in identifying students that are interested to apply.  Please forward the opportunity to guidance counselors, math/science faculty, students, parents, and administrators.  If you should have any questions, please contact me.
