Columbia, SC – The South Carolina Governor's School for Science & Mathematics (GSSM) is now accepting applications for CREATEng, an advanced, interactive engineering summer camp for rising 8th and 9th graders, in Greenwood County, June 5-7, 2017, at Lander University. Online applications are available at www.scgssm.org/createng.
CREATEng is GSSM’s one-of-a-kind engineering and design thinking day camp for rising 8th and 9th graders. Working through project-based, hands-on team challenges, students learn what engineering is and what engineers do. With a focus on manufacturing and biomedical engineering, student teams will be challenged to design blades and gears for a wind turbine, solder and build optical heart-rate monitors, and print 3-D prototypes of manufacturing or medical solutions for testing. Students will also interact with guest speakers and go on a field trip to see engineering in action.
CREATEng serves 60 students and will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. There is an early bird registration fee of $225 per camper if paid with submitted application before April 10, 2017. Following that, the cost increases to $250 per camper. This includes all instructional materials, a T-shirt, lunches and snacks. Need-based scholarships are available.
The application deadline for all of GSSM’s summer programs is May 15, 2017.
