Hands-on Tech H.O.T. Days @ Georgia Tech Day Camp

H.O.T. Days @ Georgia Tech

The H.O.T. Days @ Georgia Tech camp is a one-week-long summer day camp designed to introduce students attending high schools in Georgia to electrical and computer engineering (ECE) concepts. The goal of the program is to instill an interest in ECE and increase the number of high school graduates majoring in this field.

Camp attendees participate in a wide variety of hands-on activities and projects, including building a computer, working with robots, using music synthesis technology, building simple digital logic circuits, constructing a speaker from common household parts, and tours of various research labs. ECE faculty and researchers design and teach the activities and are assisted by ECE undergraduate and graduate students.

During the summer of 2020, two sessions of the day camp will be offered: June 8 - 12, 2020 and June 15 - 19, 2020. The daily schedule will run from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm each day. Twenty participants, rising sophomores and juniors, per session will be selected from a statewide applicant pool. Students who like and excel in math and science courses and who want to explore electrical or computer engineering to determine whether these fields might be their choice of major in college are encouraged to apply. Please note: H.O.T. Days is a day camp--students do not stay overnight.

The registration fee for the program is $200. Limited financial assistance is available for students who meet financial need requirements.
