Governor’s Science and Technology Champions Academy




GSTCA 2014, hosted by the University of Houston, College of Technology


The Governor’s Science and Technology Champions Academy (GSTCA) was a week long, residential, STEM camp sponsored by Governor Rick Perry and the Texas Workforce Commission.  Fifty (50) eligible winners from the ExxonMobil Texas Science and Engineering Fair (EMTSEF) attended the Champions Academy, all expenses paid.  The camp was held June 16-20, 2014 at the University of Houston, in Houston, Texas.  The theme this year was all about Energy, Entrepreneurs and Education.

Winners from the EMTSEF Senior Division received invitations to attend.   Participants enjoyed visiting with entrepreneurs, business accelerators, energy companies, innovators, and professors during this busy week of field trips, tours, museum visits, discussions, and lab activities.

The 2014 GSTCA Camp was led by Raymond E. Cline, PI and Karen Cohen, Director.

Thanks to all our sponsors, partners and supporters who contributed to the success of this Academy.
