Florida Tech Summer Camps: Learn, Create, Build, Play

More than 50 Camps Available in Academics, Art, Sports and More

MELBOURNE, FLA. — Designed a robot. Flew an airplane. Perfected a jump shot. Created a business plan. Met new friends.

Made lasting memories.

Want your kids to be able to give an answer like that when asked what they did this summer? Those experiences and many more are available starting in June at over 50 summer camps from Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne.

Registration is now underway. Get started at http://camps.fit.edu.

There are new camps for 2015. Introduction to Robotics, for example, runs June 15-19. Participants will learn about robots and their applications, participate in the construction of a robot arm and build their own individual robot they can take home.

SIAM Applied Mathematics, another new camp scheduled for June 22-July 3, will immerse high school students in modern applied mathematics and operations research even as they work with the popular engineering and technical software language MATLAB.

A version of the SIAM camp for kids age 10-14 will be held June 8-19.

There are plenty of old favorites returning, as well. Summer Flight Camp at F.I.T. Aviation highlights the exciting world of aviation, from learning about the dynamics of airplanes and principles of flight to experiencing cutting-edge flight simulators. There are two sessions, June 8-12 for grades 7-9 and July 6-10 for grades 10-12.

Budding young artists can enhance their art knowledge and hone their skills during any of the more than one dozen art camps at Florida Tech’s Foosaner Art Museum running June 9-July 31 in the Eau Gallie Arts District.

Florida Tech Panthers basketball coach Billy Mims is hosting both individual and team basketball camps for boys throughout June and July, and there are camps targeting skills and team play for girls, as well.

Or maybe at Youth Entrepreneurship Camp, with sessions June 15-19 and June 22-26, participants will create a company that taps into the technology, team work and creative thinking that are on display at those other camps.

But enrolling in a Florida Tech sports or academic summer camp offers more than just the camp experience. It offers a valuable introduction to the college experience at a top national research university. While having fun and honing their athletic skills or diving deeper into the academic fields that excite them, campers will also get to experience campus life first-hand. Plus, full-day participants get to eat lunch in our fabulous Panther Dining Hall.

The registration process has been streamlined for 2015, as well, with all camps now accepting online payment.
