NEW - Engineering Aerial Robotics

Aerial-Robotics-1

Competing groups of students will develop a semi-autonomous mobile robot to remotely navigate an arena in which a wildfire is ongoing. Other team members will cooperatively fly a drone to survey the area being explored by the mobile robot in real-time. Additionally, an eye-in-the-sky thermal camera will intermittently provide IR imagery, which can be processed to detecting thermal emissions (i.e., fires). Students will develop software to process robotic sensors and IR imagery. Students will use the information extracted from the pictures/videos sent by their drone, sensors on the mobile robot, and the eye-in-the-sky camera to find and rescue specific targets (e.g., humans, cattle, other valuable objects) and bring them back from the arena.

We will host a graduation lunch on the last day of the program, which parents/families are welcome and encouraged to attend. 

Sign up here to attend a Graduation Luncheon/Dinner.

For: High School Students ages 15-18 who are interested in Engineering, Software Development, and Robotics.

Program Fee: $1300

Program Dates: Sunday, June 10-Friday, June 15, 2018

Location: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Prescott, 3700 Willow Creek Road, Prescott, AZ 86301

Scholarships

The Boeing High School Scholars Program is a highly selective program that provides students the opportunity to study collegiate level engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The Boeing Corporation, in partnership with ERAU Prescott, offers full or partial scholarships to cover the cost of an engineering summer program. * (*Scholarships do not cover travel expenses to or from ERAU).

Boeing Scholarships spaces available in the following programs: Aerospace Engineering “Aero” Track, Aerospace Engineering “Astro” Track, Engineering Aerial Robotics and CESE Arduino. Female and minority students are strongly encouraged to apply.

Scholarship Requirements:

  • Have a 3.0 GPA or higher
  • Be able to prove financial need
  • Minorities and females are strongly encouraged to apply
  • Must be a U.S. citizen
  • Submit a one page essay (requirements below)

Essay Questions:

  • What innovations do you see in the future of engineering?
  • Why is attending this program important to you?

In order for your scholarship application to be considered, both questions must be answered in essay format and submitted before April 1, 2018. Applications submitted without an essay will NOT be considered for the scholarship. Click here to upload your essay as an email attachment or email your essay to prsummer@erau.edu.

Summer Overnight Camps

Live on campus like Embry-Riddle students and explore career possibilities in flight, mechanical engineering, global security, or what it is like to be a NASA astronaut.

Embry-Riddle's overnight summer programs at the Daytona Beach Campus and Prescott Campus introduce the technology of today to the aviators, engineers, and astronauts of tomorrow.

Students live in on-campus dormitories — under the supervision of approved counselors — and share their initial experience of University living with other young people near their age
