Legos and a computer on a desk

This all-inclusive STEM Summer camp spans from Monday morning to Friday evening. It is centered on interactive learning of planetary science and technology. We especially encourage applications from deserving students from low-income families. The university will provide computer resources, space, housing and meals for a group of 12 students from Grades 6-8. The implementation of a fully integrated experience provides equal opportunity to all students, independently from their resources. The LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Space Challenge's mini-games let the campers learn about STEM through hands-on problem-solving. The students work as young scientists and engineers, “immersing themselves in motivating STEM activities that prompt creative problem solving, communication and teamwork” (LEGO Education, 2020). We supplement these activities with scientific laboratory visits at Embry-Riddle and presentations from Engineering Physics faculty from Astronomy, Astrophysics, Planetary Sciences, Space Sciences and other related STEM fields.

This camp tuition is fully supported by the National Science Foundation under CAREER grant 2047863 to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University). Scholarship slots will be awarded on a rolling basis. (One submission per person.)

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.
