STEM Camps

Summer Rising Camps

Summer STEM Camps provide a week of hands-on learning for students in middle and high school. Teachers train with practicing scientists and engineers from the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division to learn the knowledge and skills required of STEM professionals. Camp registration is open to rising 8th graders and the high school camp is open to rising 9th and 10th graders. Students work in teams and rotate through the various learning experiences. Students are ultimately responsible for a final presentation that captures their learning and requires their use of technology as they present to a panel of STEM professionals who judge their presentations. This camp is free and open to the public.

  • Rising 8th Grade means the student must be in 7th grade in Spring 2017.
    Camp Date: June 19-23, 2017
  • Rising 9th/10th Grade means the student must be in either 8th or 9th grade in Spring 2017.
    Camp Date: June 26-30, 2017
    This camp is now full, and we are no longer accepting applications.

Dancer with formulas web.jpg


Dancers seem to defy gravity, but the laws of physics still apply. Learn how the human body works within the limits of physics to create extraordinary, graceful movements. Move like a dancer to understand the science behind dance movements. 

This course is for 6th - 10th grade students and is from 8:30 a.m. - noon, July 17-18 at FSU Panama City Holley Academic Center. Cost is $25 and no dance experience is required - this is a science of dance course, not a dance class.
