Lake Technical College is excited to offer STEM camps this summer for students currently in 5th, 6th, and 7th grades. During the 4-day camp, students will build, operate, and program robots to compete in fun and thought-provoking challenges; learn about and fly drones to gather information for a mock investigation; and design and print a 3D model using SolidWorks.
“We are so excited to provide these STEM and career exploration opportunities to the middle school students in our county. With the new Center for Advanced Manufacturing on our campus, we are hoping that these hands-on summer camps will be a way to engage younger students and show them that manufacturing can be fun!” ~ Dr. Diane Culpepper, Executive Director of Lake Technical College
The 4-day camp (Monday – Thursday) will be offered four times this summer as follows: June 18-21, June 25-28, July 9-12, and July 16-19. Camp hours are 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM, and before and after care is not available. Camps will be held in the Center for Advanced Manufacturing located on Lake Tech’s main campus at 2001 Kurt Street, Eustis. The $100 registration fee includes lunch and snacks each day and a camp t-shirt. Financial assistance may be available for qualified candidates.
The camps are limited to 12 students per session, and applications are now being accepted through April 13. Applications may be available at elementary and middle schools. For more information on the camp, please contact Laurie Bryant at 352.589.2250, x1828, or BryantL2@lake.k12.fl.us.
