CEISMC Student Programs

CEISMC Student Programs is excited to offer in-person and virtual summer programs this summer. We will offer weekly summer programs from May 31 - July 23. Your students can join us for a socially distanced program on Georgia Tech's campus or connect with us virtually from the comfort of their homes. These weekly summer experiences are designed to increase Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) knowledge through hands-on and engaging experiential activities.

Into the Storm

Ever wanted to be a meteorologist or storm researcher? Been caught in severe weather and wondered what caused it? In this one-week program, students will explore the physics behind the formation of hazardous and severe weather events in our atmosphere. This will include learning how to analyze surface weather maps, weather balloon launch data, radar and satellite data, and other relevant meteorological information. Students will also work on a mini-research topic, investigating an extreme weather event of interest.

Wanted: K-2 Teacher Art or STEAM Teachers
 
The Georgia Tech School of Interactive Computing would love your help to learn how we can use 3D virtual environments to teach and incorporate art in K-2 classrooms! Researchers at Georgia Tech are exploring how 3D virtual environments can be used to better supplement art education and improve student engagement. If you are a K-2 teacher with at least six months of teaching experience who is willing to take 15-30 minutes to answer an anonymous survey to tell us about how you like to teach and use art, please click the link below! You can also volunteer to be selected to participate in further design sessions after the completion of this survey.
 
For questions about this work, contact Dr. Jessica Roberts, assistant professor in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech, at jessica.roberts@cc.gatech.edu.
