14th Exploring Engineering Academy (EEA) - June 1-6, 2014 @ Georgia Tech

Posted on Feb 20 2014 - 10:57pm

The 14th Exploring Engineering Academy (EEA) will be held on the Georgia Institute of Technology campus from Sunday afternoon, June 1, 2014, through Friday evening, June 6, 2014, residing in Ga Tech dorms.  Applicants (male and female) must be at least 14 years old and have completed the 8th grade.  No previous Scouting experience is required for your application.  My personal guess is the program best serves rising 10th and 11th grade students with an interest in engineering, math, and/or science.

EEA is a joint effort of the Georgia Engineering Foundation and the Learning for Life Division of BSA.  There are two tracks for students, which I will call Traditional Engineering and STEM, that visit various firms or laboratories in the Atlanta area, or meet with Ga Tech and Emory professors or CDC researchers during the week to explore their uses of engineering, science, math, or technology.

The EEA application and the 2013 schedule (2014 schedule is under construction) can be found at www.atlantabsa.org/exploring.

Scroll down a screen and look in the “Upcoming Events”.  Please do not judge the EEA program by this BSA web-page. Scholarship funds are available, so please ask for one. As an EEA Steering Committee member, I will endeavor to answer your program content questions.  You may contact me at jimfishr@bellsouth.net
