Computer, Electrical & Software Engineering - Arduino

Computer, Electrical, & Software Engineering - Arduino

Join us for 1 week of pre-college, academic classes!

Microprocessors have revolutionized every aspect of aerospace technology. Our Arduino pre-college program allows students to take an inside look in the Computer, Electrical, and Software Engineering industries. This hands-on experience provides students the ability to learn about software, hardware, and applying the Arduino. Each student will be tasked with programming an Arduino Microcontroller, and testing applications such as sensing temperature and pressure, and controlling motors.

Students will also learn about printed circuit board design and fabrication, soldering surface mount components, and designing their own applications for the Arduino to be used in labs. Labs will consist of creating a prototype design on a breadboard, and verifying the design works using our state-of-the-art test and measurement equipment. This summer program will enable participants to take their interest in computer, electrical, and software engineering to the next level.

Registration for Summer 2019 will open on Monday, December 3, 2018.  In the meantime if you would like more information or to be put on our email list, please email us or complete the form on the right.

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, 2019. 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.

Scholarship Applicants do not need to pay a program deposit in order to apply for a scholarship. However, your Boeing Scholarship Application does not secure or hold a spot for you.

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
