The Science Mill summer camp offered by Seguin ISD

SEGUIN, Texas (May 8, 2023) – For the second year, Seguin ISD students will get to experience
adventures in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with The Science Mill
Summer Camps.
These camps are a joint effort of the school district, Texas Lutheran University and The Science
The Texas Pioneer Foundation (TPF) has once again donated substantially to this effort. TPF’s
Executive Director Fred Markham was thrilled to learn of The Science Mill’s summer camp
program last year when Seguin ISD reached out for assistance. He saw the positive impact of this
engaging approach on students who may never have considered a STEM career otherwise. TPF
is now proudly contributing to offer Science Mill STEM camps in more locations across the
This year Seguin ISD’s Science Mill experience at TLU will be available for elementary students
(those entering third through current fifth grade) the weeks of either June 12 or June 19 at Camp
May Day. Current middle school students (sixth through eighth grade) can enjoy this opportunity
the week of June 26 at Camp Create to Escape. Both levels of camp will cast students as heroes
who must use their STEM knowledge and skills to bring order to a post-apocalyptic world.
Students may attend as part of the SISD Summer Camp or they may participate in only Science
Mill Camp.  Either way, students should register at .  There are a
limited number of spaces available and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Dr. Matthew Gutierrez, Seguin ISD superintendent of schools, was an early supporter of the
Science Mill camps. He can now personally attest their benefits, as one of his sons attended and
brought the excitement home last summer.
According to Dr. Gutierrez, Seguin ISD’s commitment to offering this innovative STEM
education is based on the belief that any student can succeed in any field.

“Helping students internalize the vision of themselves embarking on a career in a STEM field
truly has the potential to be a transformational solution to generational poverty. The impact on
our District’s current 70% poverty rate could be astounding. We are dedicated to offering
innovative teaching that will bring STEM to life for our students and help them grow into the
best they can be regardless of their current situation,” he said.
