Like MathSP, Georgia Tech’s Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics and Computing (CEISMC) and iD Tech’s summer camps at Emory University endeavor to equip Georgia’s K-12 students with the best possible STEM education as they strive to find their place in the world. Georgia Tech and Emory University provide the state’s most comprehensive, rigorous and electrifying summer programs. If you dream about becoming a STEM Leader or if you simply want to fortify your STEM education, spending this summer at one of these campuses will provide you with priceless opportunities to achieve your STEM goals.
CEISMC’s PEAKS Program @ Georgia Tech
CEISMC (pronounced “seismic”) offers a wide array of STEM-oriented summer programs for elementary, middle school and high school students. All of their programs aspire to immerse students in the world of STEM. Like a foreign language or a work of literature, STEM requires complete submersion before its students can feel the full thrust of its power, ubiquity and beauty. Nothing can expedite this immersive process more than real-world experiences that are captained by some of the world’s most preeminent STEM Leaders. PEAKS empowers students with priceless opportunities to connect with Georgia Tech’s outstanding faculty. From working with Atlanta architects and civil engineers to explore the world of sustainable architecture to collaborating with computer engineers to develop iPhone applications, PEAKS students meaningfully engage the hands-on world of STEM and gain wonderful memories and friendships in the process.

iD Tech @ Emory University
Emory University has partnered with iD Tech Camps, the “#1 tech camp on the planet,” to provide Georgia students with three distinct computer-learning programs: iD Tech Camps, iD programming Academy, and iD Game Design & Development Academy. iD Tech is home to some of the coolest and most intelligent instructors that the STEM education world has to offer. iD programs are either a week or two weeks in duration. If you’re interested in a weeklong program, you may also consider the overnight option to get a taste of the collegiate experience. If you’re interested in spending two weeks at an iD program, then prepare to stay overnight: the collegiate atmosphere is integral to these longer and more rigorous academies. Beyond igniting students’ passion for STEM, iD camps strive to increase the likelihood that its students will go on to complete four-year degrees. That’s why they collaborate with some of the best colleges in the country: to offer iD campers the opportunity to stay on campus and see just how intellectually stimulating college life can be. To date, 94% of iD students go on to attend a four-year university. iD camps guarantee a maximum of eight students per instructor for personalized learning. Students choose from a variety of STEM-oriented classes: game design and development, programming, iPhone and iPad app development, coding, robotics, engineering, web development, web design, 3D animation, modeling, film and photography. Leveraging the best brand name technology products (Adobe, Apple, Autodesk and Microsoft), students get hands-on, high-energy technology development experience while collaborating with peers, experimenting with code, confronting mind-boggling problems, and making lifelong friends.
