Rogers State University Pryor will host two new aerospace-themed academies this summer thanks to a grant from the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

AeroCamp Summer Academy will challenge students 8th through 11th grade to learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts by working hands-on with aerospace-related devices. OSRHE’s 2016 Summer Academies Program provided an $18,000 grant for the camps, which will allow them to be free for participating students.

RSU Pryor will hold two five-day academies that will give students the theory, skills and application they need to compete on an accelerated level. The academies will be held on June 6-10 and July 11-15 in collaboration with area high schools and industries within the MidAmerica Industrial Park, such as Google, the Cherokee Nation Aerospace Industries and Tulsa Life Flight.

“We want to get junior and high school students excited about STEM-related activities,” said Sherry Alexander, Director of the RSU Pryor campus. “The extended format with these five-day camps will really allow students to explore math and science in a fun way that will spark their desire to learn and excel in these fields.”

AeroCamp Summer Academy has three goals: to equip students to thrive in technology-driven professions; to inform students about the advantages of higher education; and to teach students about teamwork, mentoring and leadership.

During the week, students will be challenged to apply STEM concepts by working hands-on with rockets, remote-controlled helicopters, quads (drones), and blimps. College prep and career exploration components will also be offered to stimulate interest and excitement in higher education.
