Mitchell-Neilson Elementary School students Don Kim, front, Freddy Sanchez and Trevelle Timmons (with camera) enjoyed the activities and field trips that a combined nearly 50 Mitchell-Neilson students participated in during the two-week Camp PRiSM, a collaboration between MTSU and Murfreesboro City Schools. During the camp, the students spent time in MTSU chemistry and engineering technology laboratories and the MTSU Dairy and milk-processing plant. They toured Nissan in Smyrna and MTSU aerospace facilities at Murfreesboro Airport, learned how to make Sharpie pens and much more. The program ended June 8. (MTSU News and Media Relations photo)
