Computer, Electrical & Software Engineering - Arduino

Computer, Electrical, & Software Engineering - Arduino

All sessions are closed for Summer 2017. Registration for Summer 2018 will open on November 1, 2017.

Are you interested in computer engineering, but not sure which specialty you might like?

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.

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

For: High School Students ages 15-18 who are interested in computer, electrical, and software engineering. 

Program Fee: TBA

Program Dates: TBA

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

Boeing Scholarship Applications have been awarded for this year and we are no longer able to accept applications for Summer 2017

The Boeing High School Scholars Program is a highly selective program that provides high school students with an opportunity to experience college level course work in engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with other promising engineering peers. The Boeing Corporation in partnership with ERAU Prescott offers full or partial scholarships to cover the cost of an engineering summer program.

Your Boeing Scholarship application does not secure or hold a spot for you. If you wish to guarantee a spot in any specific engineering program, you will also need to pay the deposit, complete the registration packet forms, as well as submit the Boeing application.

If a student is selected to receive a Boeing Scholarship, deposits will be refunded and other non-deposit payments may be refunded according to the total amount of scholarship awarded in conjunction with the payment that we received and the total cost of the program.

If students are not selected to receive a scholarship and wish to cancel their registration, deposits will be refunded upon request, within 30 days of notification of the Boeing Scholarship application decision.

Please refer to the Prescott Parent Information section for more information on this scholarship program!

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
