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.

Cost Per Student:

 $450

The GT G.I.R.L.S. (Girls Interested in Rapidly Learning STEAM) Program will introduce girls too exciting opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) for college and beyond. G.I.R.L.S. will conduct various hands-on activities and experiments throughout the week. Students will have an opportunity to interact with female GT faculty and students and learn more about life at GT and STEAM fields of study.

 

 

 

 

Session Name:

 Coded Beats

Session Date:

 June 21 - June 25, 2021 

Cost Per Student:

 $450                 6th - 12th Grade

Are you ready to become the next big music producer? Through the process of mixing beats and learning about music production, students will learn valuable STEM skills including computer coding with the Python programming language.

 

 

 

 

Session Name:

 MakerCamp

Session Date:

 June 28 - July 2, 2021 

Cost Per Student:

 $450

In this session, participants will engage in hands-on activities where they can think critically and creatively all while having fun! Whether it is applying engineering skills to build a tower or programming skills to build a Kamigami robot, participants will learn how to effectively find solutions to problems and collaborate with others on a team. If you are interested in learning to code, this session is also for you. Learn how to code information and have a code “dance party” to show off your skills. In MakerCamp participants can create, build, program, and enhance their artistic skills.

 

 

 

 

Session Name:

 Masters of Science

Session Date:

 June 28 - July 2, 2021 

Cost Per Student:

 $450

Welcome! Earn your degree in the Masters of Science program, an exciting week of daily hands-on science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and art activities delivered to your door, featuring live guided instruction and enough materials to create your own personal STEM lab at home to create, explore, and tinker with. This week is all about being both creative and inventive as we explore physics, chemistry, and electromagnetism with an art bent. Our goal for the week is to create experiences that shift your perspectives and expand your STEM horizons.

 

 

 

 

Session Name:

 Biology Bonanza

Session Date:

 July 6 - July 9, 2021 *no class Monday for Holiday

Cost Per Student:

 $360

Biology Bonanza provides engaging opportunities for you to learn about DNA, cells, and body systems. Participate in dissections to explore organs, tissues, and muscles within an organism. Compare and contrast the organelles in a plant and animal cell and also design your own cell. Visit research labs across the campus to learn more about current research studies in biology. Learn the impact biology has on everyday life!

 

 

 

 

Session Name:

 RAD Engineering

Session Date:

 July 6 - July 9, 2021 *no class Monday for Holiday

Cost Per Student:

 $360

Join us at the intersection of digital design, 3D printing, and engineering to explore clever solutions to a variety of exciting and challenging opportunities! Rapidly build, crush, and fail your way to destructive structural success, optimize the aerodynamic performance of electric aircraft, devise vehicle crash protection structures, and find a way to safely recover space capsules intact. This program will help develop working knowledge of computer-aided design, aspects of 3D rapid prototyping, and applications of sensor telemetry in STEM with emphasis on the fields of civil and mechanical engineering.

 
 
 
 

 

 

 

Session Name:

 Think like an Engineer: Helmet Design

Session Date:

 July 6 - July 9, 2021 *no class Monday for Holiday

Cost Per Student:

 $360

Wearing a helmet can save your life.  There is no question about that when it comes to racing. It's a requirement. The helmet protects drivers from impact and allows them to communicate via radio with their crew. They are designed to have a hard outer shell and an inner layer of special crushable foam. Both of these layers help disperse the crash energy and protect the brain. Just imagine, most racecar drivers are reaching speeds of over 200 miles per hour, resulting in impact reaching 50 to 100Gs.  At those G's, a helmet is your best friend.


In this project, students will be invited to design a concept Formula One race car helmet using Autodesk® Fusion360.  The helmet must support the highest degree of safety and comfort to the user. The design aesthetic must convey speed and the style and culture of Formula One racing.
