2020 Summer Programs - All On-Campus Programs Cancelled!

All on-campus 2020 Summer Programs have been cancelled due to COVID-19.  Please check back here for updates on possible alternative summer offerings in the coming weeks. Like you, we are extremely disappointed but excited about new summer programming in the pipeline.

We sincerely appreciate your interest in our summer program, and we hope to have you on campus with us for our future events.

If you have any additional questions, please contact us at: gtsoutreach@gatech.edu or (912) 966-7952. Email is the most efficient way to get a timely response. We apologize for any delays as we strive to return all emails and phone calls ASAP with limited resources.

Every week-long program is uniquely themed to provide a full summer of STEM/STEAM fun and learning for everyone. Additionally, all programs now include a meaningful take-home component so that participants can continue to expand their STEM/STEAM knowledge long after the week is over!
 
See all the descriptions for programs listed below. All programs will be located at the Georgia Tech Savannah Campus. Each day will run from 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM and all parents/guardians will be invited to a student showcase on Friday starting at 1:30 PM. Students will need to bring a non-perishable lunch daily.

Summer Program FAQs

How much does it cost to attend?
TBD
 
When is payment due?
Payment is due when you register.  Your registration is not complete without payment, and unfortunately, cannot be processed until we receive payment.
 
How do I register?
All parents must create an account on our official registration site. The registration site is secure and will retain the information that is input by the registrants.
 
What is the waitlist?
Our registration system will automatically generate a waitlist when a week is full. If there is availability within the week, the registration system automatically sends an email to the participant at the top of the waitlist.
 
Where do summer programs meet?
All summer programs meet at the Georgia Tech-Savannah campus, 210 Technology Circle Savannah, Georgia 31407 in ELAB.
 
Could a summer program be canceled?
While unlikely, CEISMC reserves the right to cancel a program at any time for any reason. If this should happen, a full refund would be issued. CEISMC also reserves the right to remove students during the program week for a number of reasons we will disclose in your acceptance email. Refunds for student misconduct or rule violations will not be offered.
 
Does my student need to bring anything?
Your student will be provided with all materials and supplies needed for success with all projects and activities. They do need to bring a non-perishable lunch, water bottle, and a light jacket. We do not refrigerate lunches. Also, students will not have access to a microwave. Please, no soda, candy, or gum. No, personal electronics allowed including e-readers, DS, cell phones, cameras, tablets, and iPads. CEISMC cannot be responsible for these devices.
 
How are students grouped?

Who are the program instructors?
Programs are taught by a mixture of Georgia Tech faculty/staff, Georgia Tech students, and area science and math teachers.
 
How do I get updates?
We post updates and important information on our website.  Some information will also be sent via email. EMAIL IS OUR PRIMARY MEANS OF COMMUNICATION. It is of the utmost importance that the parent email address you provide us on your registration is spelled correctly and checked often. 
 
Will I get a refund if I need to cancel?
In order to keep our program as economical as possible, we are not able to offer refunds for any reason.
 
Can a student with disabilities attend camp?
Students with disabilities are welcome in our camps. Please let us know how to best support your student to be successful in the camps either via email, online camp registration form or directly with camp staff. Your privacy is important to us and student information will only be shared with staff working with your student.
 
Do I need a teacher recommendation?
Teacher recommendations are not required to attend summer programs.
 
Do you have scholarships?
Yes! There are a limited number of scholarships available per week. Information regarding scholarships can be found here.
 
If I go to one week, can I go to more sessions?
Yes! Every week is different. See the list of programs above or on the registration website.
 
What about lunch? Food allergies?
Students should plan to bring a non-perishable, (brown bag lunch that does not need refrigeration) healthy lunch that will give them the energy they need to participate in Make It, Move It! No soda, candy, or gum. Please use our registration form to let us know about food allergies and any other special needs your camper may have. Students are not permitted to share/trade lunches due to food allergies.
 
What if my student has other special circumstances or needs?
Please let us know how we can help using the registration form.
 
What about photography?
Unless you tell us differently, CEISMC may use photographs of your student in our materials.
 
What about the weather? Emergencies?
While unlikely, weather and other natural and emergency situations may occur beyond the program's control. If a partial program cancellation is required, no refund will be offered. An example would be a rainy day early dismissal or late start time to accommodate safe traveling of staff, students, and their families. Any short term unforeseen weather or other emergencies will not be able to be refunded partially in any form.
