2017 Summer STEM Experience

Welcome

 

Eagles in Training for STEM Careers.
The i²STEMe Experience Summer 2017 camp programs focus on hands-on projects that inspire campers to work collaboratively to investigate potential solutions to problems in their immediate environment through the process of design engineering.

Each of our camps engages students and encourages exploration and investigation by teaching them how to evaluate problems and design potential solutions in real-world scenarios. Encourage your students to learn to apply the engineering design process which combines practical knowledge and their natural creativity to devise potential solutions to some of today’s issues. During the Eagle i²STEMe Experience, students will be encouraged to imagine, plan, create, improve, and inquire in collaboration with their instructors and their peers.

All Eagle i²STEMe Experience programming is created by experts in their fields and will be monitored and evaluated to ensure that the students are engaged in the application of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics, along with the necessary ‘soft skills’ to create, collaborate, and communicate to a variety of audiences – all while having a blast!

About the Institute for i²STEMeimage02
The Institute for Interdisciplinary STEM Education (i²STEMe) aims to establish collaborative interdisciplinary programs committed to excellence in K-20 STEM teaching and learning, with a focus on rural, diverse, low socioeconomic status, and under-represented populations.

Here at i²STEMe, we strive to create broadly inclusive partnerships across academia, business, education, and research centers in Southeast Georgia, support professional development, outreach, curricular development, innovative courses, and research in STEM education through grant funded projects, and establish interdisciplinary STEM education master’s and Ph.D. programs.

“[Science] is more than a school subject, or the periodic table, or the properties of waves. It is an approach to the world, a critical way to understand and explore and engage with the world, and then have the capacity to change that world…”
— President Barack Obama, March 23, 2015

The Creators

Dates: June 14- 15, 2017 (Limited to 16 participants)
Time: 9 a.m. -4 p.m.
Instructor Information: Dr. Aniruddha Mitra and Dr. Ria R. Ramoutar
Location: GSU Carruth Building #1024
Registration Deadline: June 10, 2017

Registration Fee: $60 (lunch included)

This camp introduces the fun of engineering to participants. This challenging hands on camp will give students the opportunity to do force analysis with the human arm, program robots for balancing, determine internal forces in structures and beams, and experiment with emulsifiers. The camp will take them to the next level of meaningful analysis of the data collected through experiments and how to communicate your findings to the others.
