Virtual SeaPerch Camp - VPerch Summer 2021

Description: The Virtual SeaPerch Camp is a 1-week summer program that provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science and mathematics (STEM) through a variety of hands-on projects.  Students will design, build and simulate the performance of a SeaPerch using the VPerch app.  Three (3) 1-week sessions will be held in July 2021.

During each session of VPerch, students will engage in workshops that teach basic engnineering and science concepts to introduce students to the "engineering design process" as it relates to SeaPerch, a remotely operated vehicle (ROV).  The "engineering design process" will be taught through a variety of projects that focus on buoyancy, electricity, motors and structures. 

Target Group: Rising 8th, 9th, 10, and 11th graders

ESTEEM/SER-Quest Program

Description: 

The ESTEEM Research Mentoring Program (Engineering Science and Technology to Energize and Expand Young Minds) and the Summer Engineering Research (SER)-Quest is an intensive 4-week VIRTUAL research-focused program sponsored by the Center for Minorities in Science and Engineering. 

The goal of the ESTEEM/SER-Quest Program is to recruit talented students to attend the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. 

During the ESTEEM/SER-Quest Program, students will:

  • Explore engineering through a research project 
  • Learn about engineering research and engineering concepts 
  • Develop a research proposal,  complete a literature search,  and review for the research project 
  • Learn about the college application process, financial aid processes, and test-taking strategies
  • Meet undergraduate and graduate students through engineering-focused programs and activities

Please note that participation in the ESTEEM/SER-Quest does not guarantee admission to the University of Maryland.

Target Group: Rising 12th-grade students

Data Science: How Can Data Predict What is Next?

Description: Are you interested in how data can predict "what's next", create compelling arguments, or guide our actions and decisions? Then this summer experience might be for you! Data science demonstrates how we use data to characterize, visualize, and operationalize our decision-making processes . Modeling and analyzing data form the foundation of policies you are affected by, public planning you interact with, how economies operate, and more.
