Through the support of the North Carolina Legislature and the University of North Carolina system, 436 high school students from 75 counties completed an early-college residential experience by participating in the Summer Ventures in Science and Mathematics program this summer.

The program is administered by the state School of Science and Mathematics. It was conducted on the campuses of six universities June 19 - July 16 at East Carolina University, N.C. Central University, the Unive-rsity of North Carolina at Charlotte and Western Carolina University, and June 26 - July 23 at the UNC at Wilmington, and July 3 - July 30 at Appalachian State University.
