Summer Programs at GaTech

Middle School Programs
SummerScape
- Science, engineering, mathematics, and computing enrichment camp for students entering 7th and 8th grades. Two SummerScape programs will be offered in 2006 and each will be offered 3 times.

SummerScape I Adventures In Animation- Would you like to make your own movie or game? Would you like to build a robot that can navigate an obstacle course, or sort your candy by color? At the Georgia Tech SummerScape I camp you will get a chance to do this and more. You will work with an exciting new program from MIT called “Scratch” that lets you easily create 2D games. You can take a digital picture of yourself and then add some image manipulations to have your picture 'dance' to music. You can work with “Alice” from Carnegie Mellon University, which lets you be the director of a 3D movie. You can assemble a robot with the LEGO Mindstorms Robotics Invention System and then tell it what to do. This camp is supported through the College of Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology.

Program Dates: Session 1. June 12-16, 2006, Session 2. June 19-23, 2006, Session 3. June 26-30, 2006
Application Fee: $10.00 (nonrefundable); Program Fee: $275.00 (Refundable up to one week prior to the start of the program.)


SummerScape II Hovering Around Tech - In the context of designing and building a variety of hovercraft, participants will learn essentials of engineering design and the physics that keeps hovercraft aloft and moving. Cutting-edge experimental educational software will be used to aid design and physics learning. Participants must be willing to be included in a research study investigating the effectiveness of the software. This camp is supported through the College of Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology.

Program Dates: Session 1. July 10-14, 2006, Session 2. July 17-21, 2006, Session 3. July 24-28, 2006
