|STEM Summer Camps|
Applications have opened for the popular Summer STEM Program at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland and will be taken though April 15, 2014.
The US Naval Academy STEM camps are offered for rising 8th -11th graders. The application includes not only basic questions about academic background, but about physical ability (as in, tell us about what varsity sports you’re in) as well. These are selective programs which aim to bring together a diverse group of participants from across the US.
According to their brochure, topics such as Energy and Light, Infrastructure, Transportation and Cybersecurity, Environmental Challenges, Flight and Fluids, Automation, Simulation and Modeling, Biometrics and Robotics will be covered in ways that allows for hands-on participation.
Parents must cover the cost of transportation to BWI or the Naval Academy in addition to the $200 approximate cost for the program, which covers meals, housing and materials.
