Summer@Rensselaer Presents Offerings for All Ages
For more than five years, the Academic Outreach Programs office within Undergraduate and Graduate Education has provided individuals of all ages with an opportunity to explore and develop their passions and interests through a variety of programs.

Summer@Rensselaer offers a plethora of credit courses, academic short courses, sports camps, and enrichment programs for elementary, middle school, high school and college students, adults, and working professionals. To date, there are more than 230 individuals registered for enrichment programs and more than 1,200 registered for credit course offerings.

In an effort to provide younger students with access to resources, mentorship, and an interactive experience in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, as well as creative writing and theater, up to 14 summer enrichment programs will be offered for elementary, middle school, and high school students this year. Some of the flagship offerings include: the aerospace engineering summer career exploration, the architecture career discovery program, the computer game development academy, and the chemistry summer exploration program. In addition, there are several programs focused on exploring creativity, ecological awareness, drawing, and football, to name a few.

Two new programs include the Lally School of Management & Technology CEO Academy, a one-week residential program for students interested in pursuing management; and a four-week residential summer research program with the Half Hollow Central School District. This new program will provide high school students with an opportunity to work on projects with Rensselaer faculty mentors and graduate and undergraduate students.

In addition, the ASM Materials Camp is a special summer teacher program that will be offered for middle and high school science, physics, chemistry, and technology teachers. The one-week workshop — led by a Rensselaer faculty member — will show teachers how to use low- or no-cost everyday materials and integrate them into simple labs and experiments.

There are still openings in many of the day and residential enrichment programs.
