IUPSTEAMCamp Application
Interested in robotics, creative design, drones, and exoskeletons?  

We have more applicants that openings for STEAMCamp.  If you are interested, we still encourage you to apply and we'll put you on a waitlist. If you are on the waitlist, we'll let you know in the case there is someone who has a change in their plans. We are also planning to have a similar camp in summer 2024 -- send an email message to fadkins@iup.edu if you would like to be on our mailing list for future events.

We've got an amazing experience for you at IUP from June 19-23, 2023.  Students will get to use the IUP STEAMSHOP facility to design, laser cut, and 3D print parts to build your own simple mobile robot.  You will also get to learn about operating drones, simulating with virtual reality, and collecting safety and ergonomic data.  You'll add digital sensors and program controls for your mobile robot. 

The final day mission combines your drone skills with operating your mobile robot.  Are you up to the challenge? We are seeking students passionate about science, technology, and design-- is this you?

Camp runs Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM (drop-off starts at 8:30 AM; pick up by 4PM).  Students must commit to attending all 5 days.  Students need to bring their own packed lunch.  Camp activities, materials and instruction are supported though the Southwestern Pennsylvania New Economy Collaborative-Build Back Better Regional Challenge grant and Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Students will work with faculty and staff from across the campus in a truly interdisciplinary effort spanning departments of Mathematical and Computer Sciences, Geography, Art and Design, and Safety Science (all staff have background checks and clearances to work with students).

If you are interested in the camp, fill out the survey below. We'll review your information and email your teacher for a reference. We'll let you know in few weeks who is selected.

If you are signed into a Google account, the next box shows the email address associated with your application.
