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

H.O.T. Days @ Georgia Tech

The H.O.T. Days @ Georgia Tech camp is a one-week-long summer program designed to introduce students 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 2015, two sessions of the program will be offered: June 1-5, 2015 and June 8-12, 2015. 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.

How to Apply: The application fee is $10 and is nonrefundable. Admitted students are charged a registration fee of $175. A limited amount of need-based financial assistance is available. Students interested in participating in the program should complete the applicationdownload the teacher recommendation form, and return the teacher recommendation (from a Science or Math teacher) together with the application fee postmarked by April 1, 2015.
