If Einstein could have picked a summer camp, he would have opted for the ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp. An exciting, two-week adventure filled with field excursions and science experiments, the camp proves that math and science can entertain a crew of youngsters and help them brush up on their studies over the summer months. As a component of the camp, hosted by NJIT, campers will participate in an “ExxonMobil Day” on July 24, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., in the Campus Center Atrium. >>
