Our wonderful friends at Portland Community College -Sylvania Campus is offering TWO FIRST Robotics Summer Camps!
- Girls Only Camp June 24 – July 17 – teams can submit up to 4 female apps per team (application below)
- Co-Ed Camp July 22 – Aug 13 – teams can submit up to 2 student apps per team (application coming soon)
Here is the initial application for the 2013 PCC Girls Only Robotics Summer Camp, to be held from June 24th through July 17th. Our sponsors are very excited to host this camp so to encourage females into STEM related career fields. Please read the application carefully and have your coach apply. We are accepting up to four female primary applicants from each team.
We will also be offering a second camp open to all applicants which will run from July 22nd through August 13th. This camp will have a limit of two primary applicants per team and is more difficult to get into due to the volume of applicants. The application for this second camp will be going out in about 2 weeks.
For those who are new to how this great opportunity works, this is a three and one half week training class in which at the completion, participants will be allowed to manufacture parts using PCC’s Machine Manufacturing Technology department and equipment for their robots over the next 12 months.
The only expense for participating students is possibly parking or transportation costs on and to PCC’s campus. This program waives $700 in tuition and lab fees per student for two courses totaling seven college credits!
Please get your applications in as soon as possible as the deadline is May 15. I’ll be stopping by to get some good Rosie the Riveter pics and truly wish I could enroll too
