Please check back for updates on Summer 2022 camps.
Join us for one week of pre-college, academic classes!
Our Aerospace AERO pre-college program teaches the fundamentals of aerospace engineering and the science of flight. Classes include aerodynamics, flight mechanics, astrodynamics, robotics, propulsion systems, and aircraft design, as well as in-depth study of structures and materials, and computer aided design. Students will collaborate with their peers to learn and apply the latest technology in the aerospace engineering industry.
This is a hands-on course. Students will be working with Embry-Riddle faculty in our engineering labs on air and space vehicles while learning the principles of design. Our elite Aerospace Engineering professors have over 10+ years of experience in the field, and will give students the opportunity to apply their newly learned skills in competitions throughout the week. Competitions include the aerodynamic flight testing of balsa wood gliders, and the structural testing of 3D printed plastic models.
For: High School Students ages 15-18 who are interested in aerospace engineering
Location: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Prescott, 3700 Willow Creek Road, Prescott, AZ 86301

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 Embry-Riddle Prescott, offers full or partial scholarships to cover the cost of an engineering summer program. * (*Scholarships do not cover travel expenses to or from Embry-Riddle).
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.
- 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)
- 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 the determined deadline. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. If you wish to guarantee a spot in any engineering program, you will need to pay the deposit, complete registration forms, as well as submit the Boeing Application.

Summer Camps Updates
Fill out the form below to get up-to-date info on Summer Camps at Embry-Riddle.
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.
