ST. LOUIS (March 22, 2018) – The Doe Run Company (Doe Run) is offering two full scholarships to the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) 2018 Summer Explosives Camp in June. Interested students must apply for the Explosives Camp and submit the Doe Run scholarship application by April 15. Scholarship recipients will be notified by May 1.
Doe Run’s scholarships cover the full $1,450 camp cost, and are available to students who will be high school juniors or seniors in fall 2018 at the following districts: Potosi R-3; Kingston K-14; Iron County C-4; Bunker R-3; Valley R-VI; Salem R-80 and Southern Reynolds County R-II. Interested students can obtain a scholarship application through their high school principal’s office.
Missouri S&T’s Explosives Camp is considered the first camp of its kind. High school juniors and seniors gain hands-on experience with the safe handling and shooting of explosives for a unique look at how explosives are used in different industries.
The camp includes demonstrations, field trips to operations, such as one of Doe Run’s mines, and student projects, and ends with a bang with the shooting of a fireworks display. Qualified students who have passed a background check through the federal Safe Explosives Act are permitted to handle explosives.
The 2018 Explosives Camp will have two sessions – June 10-15 and June 17-22.
