Tarleton Physics Program

No Camp In 2015 

Tarleton didn't receive funding to cover the housing and food costs for a Summer 2015 Physics Camp. Thus, the camp will not be run in 2015. If funds are found to operate the camp, the website will be changed. 

Tarleton does plan to apply in Fall 2015 for funding to host a Physics Camp in Summer 2016.
