SAU Registration Deadline For One Summer Science Camp Is Tuesday
Southern Arkansas University's College of Science and Engineering will host two fantastic summer camps in 2018, geared toward exciting student interest in science. Coding and Cyber Security Camp will be held June 8-10, and the deadline for registration has been extended to June 5.
Engineering Summer Camp will be held July 9-11, with a registration deadline of July 2.
Both are open to students in grades 8-12 and have options for overnight and day-only campers.
Cost is $275 per participant, and both camps will 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily. Campers have the option to stay overnight in SAU residence halls.
Coding and Cyber Security will appeal to students interested in computing. They will learn how to code simple applications in processing, develop Android apps, create simulations, and build their own computers. They will also be introduced to cybersecurity, virtual reality and humanoid robot maneuvering, as well as fun math activities. All participants will receive a camp T-shirt, and an award ceremony will be held on the final day. Food and lodging are included in the price.
Engineering camp participants will do hands-on projects related to engineering and physics, including building and programming Lego Mindstorms robots, designing the path of a robotic arm, and material testing using a force tester. There will be demonstrations in physics, as well as astronomy night observations.
