CEISMC Summer P.E.A.K.S. (Programs for Enrichment and Accelerated Knowledge in STEAM) are one week long experiences designed to increase Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) knowledge through various educational activities. Summer P.E.A.K.S. give rising 4th-12th grade students the chance to enhance learning during the summer in experiential activities on campus at Georgia Tech.

                                   

CEISMC Student Programs is excited to offer in-person summer programming this summer. We will offer weekly summer programs from June 14 - July 23.  These weekly summer experiences are designed to increase Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) knowledge through hands-on and engaging experiential activities.

 

To advance the Institute's new mission and strategic plan, President Ángel Cabrera charged leaders and units throughout campus with spearheading a project to promote, implement, and advance the 17 United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at Georgia Tech.

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. Learn more here and take action!

Through our summer programs, we will be highlighting our programs that have a focus on these 17 UN Sustainable Goals.

Visit a living building that makes more energy and stores more water than it uses! Learn how solar panels and batteries can work together to provide energy even when the sun isn’t shining. Obtain insights into Electric Vehicles by operating a Radio Controlled car. Talk to researchers who are making electricity cleaner. In Energy Unplugged, students will learn about the future of energy with hands-on activities, interactive demos, and how STEM can be the engine in an energy career. The camp will include segments on how electricity is generated, where it goes, what it costs, its environmental impact, and how it can be brought to more of the world’s 2.5B people with little to none of it. Students will also participate in a 1-day field trip to an Atlanta-area energy facility.
