Are you interested in the science behind how planes fly? Or is your dream to one day pilot an aircraft? What about learning the ins and outs of the world of security and intelligence? There’s something for everyone at Embry-Riddle this summer. For more information on each of the following programs, please e-mail the Campus Summer Programs Office, or you can start the application process now.
Are you ready to take to the skies this summer? You can get your first real flight experience in this extensive introduction to the aviation industry. Participants receive ground training in our campus facilities, fly in our Cessna 172 Simulators, and pilot a Cessna 172S aircraft. All flight training is conducted by certified university flight instructors. Open to high school students ages 14-18 who are U.S. Citizens.
Aviation Discovery Camp
Not quite ready for Flight Exploration? Join us for our new Aviation Discovery Program! This three day program will give students ages 12-15 a look at the many careers available in the world of aviation. Your experience will end with a flight in a Cessna 172! Open to students ages 12-15, no citizenship requirements.
Learn how aerospace engineers make the most spectacular aircraft and space craft work. For the first time in 2013 two different tracks will be offered. Our Aero Track focuses on concepts inside our atmosphere such as planes, while our Astro Track will take students outside the atmosphere to focus on satellites, rockets, etc. Each 6-day intensive program is an overview that demonstrates the fundamental concepts of engineering in a fun, hands-on environment. Each participant will learn the science of flight, how materials stress, strain, and break, and the principles of aerospace design. Students will be introduced to a variety of fields relating to aerospace engineering through daily classes and labs. Open to high school students ages 15-18.
For students looking for the ultimate experience in space exploration, the Computer/Electrical Engineering Summer Program consists of specifying, designing, building, flying, and collecting data from a high altitude balloon flight to near outer space. Open to high school students ages 16-18 with a strong background in math and science.
Check out the Balloon Launch of 2011 to get a closer look!
New for 2013! Join us for this one of a kind program! Students will learn in a hands on environment about how aerial robots work mechanically and gain an understanding of the control theory behind them. Students will build, control, and fly their own robot and compete against their peers in a culminating challenge. Open to high school students, ages 15-18 who are U.S. Citizens.
Global Security and Intelligence 'Spy' Camp
This summer immerse yourself in the world of security and intelligence with this week long program. Participants will develop surveillance skills while using tools of the trade as well as explore the practice of cryptology and the art of illusion. In this unique experience you become the spy catcher! Open to high school students ages 15-18 who are U.S. Citizens.
