New STEM Summer School in 2014

Explore engineering and robotics this summer

4J’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program is offering a new opportunity for high-performing high school students. A first of its kind in the Eugene Metro area, the for-credit summer program for 10th–12th graders offers design and robotics experience.

Students will work in problem-solving teams and have a chance to compete for project design and function. The courses are designed to apply basic engineering, math and science principles learned in previous high school courses.

Course offerings:

Students may take one or both courses. Each course is 0.5 credits.

Course 1: Applied Engineering Principles

Explore specific areas of engineering with a structured design process. The team and individual activities will require students to demonstrate proficiency in real-world problem solving, project design and application, and communication using industry standards.

Course 2: Applied Robotic Principles

Apply principles of robotics in a lab setting. Students will receive background knowledge to complete a complex robotic problem. The team and individual activities will require students to demonstrate proficiency in understanding robotic concepts and application.

The details:

Fee: $375 per course. Limited scholarships are available.

When: Monday–Friday, July 7–Aug. 1, 2014

Engineering: 8:00–11:30 a.m.
Robotics: 12:00–3:30 p.m.

Where: STEM Building, Churchill High School campus

  • Open to 10th–12th grade students from any district and any school, including home school.
  • A student should be comfortable with and competent in algebra concepts.
  • Students are expected to fully attend the course in which they enroll.
  • Courses include projects that will require time both in and out of class plus an additional project that must be completed for credit.
