There’s Still Time to Sign up for a Robotics Camp!

We are at the brink of kick-starting the 2016 FLATE’s robotics camps, but it’s not too late to sign up for a
camp of your choice (if you haven’t already!). We still have some spots AND scholarships available for eligible students. The five day camps are poised to challenge middle and high school students to to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and their applications in everyday high-tech operations.

This year’s schedule and list of camp offerings include:

June 20-24:                  Introductory EV3 Robotics Camp for Middle School GIRLS ONLY                                    (Scholarships Available)

June 27-July 1:            Introductory EV3 Robotics Camp for ALL Middle School students

July 11-15:                  Intermediate EV3 Robotics Camp for ALL Middle School students

July 25-29:                  Engineering Technology Camp for High School Students
                             (Scholarships Available)

The Suncoast Credit Union Foundation will provide scholarships for girls from low-income families to
attend the All Girls camp. To apply for a scholarship fill out the registration forms that are currently posted on the FLATE Camps page. Scholarships are also available for students interested in enrolling in the high school camp. Students from low income families, and/or those participating in a free and reduced lunch program are eligible to apply for the high school camp scholarship which is being offered through a grant from Hillsborough County. More information on the high school camps, applications and scholarship are posted online on the FLATE Camps website. Thanks also to the Tampa Bay Chapter of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers for contributing $500 to FLATE robotics camps. 

In addition to the robotics camp in Tampa, FLATE is hosting camps at St. Petersburg College in St. Petersburg, FL, at Marion Technical Institute in Ocala, Peterson Academy in Jacksonville, North Florida Community College in Madison and other locations as well. Information on the camps at St. Petersburg College in Pinellas County and Marion Technical Institute are posted on the FLATE website under “Other Robotics Camps,” scroll to the bottom of the page to get more information about the application process and dates of the camp.
