EPICenter hosts an annual STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) Whistle summer camp for high school students in grades 9-12, focused on energy. The popular weeklong camp incorporates educational, hands-on activities and real-world simulations of energy markets to teach critical energy concepts in an engaging and accessible manner.
The Energy, Policy, and Innovation Center (EPICenter) hosted the 2023 cohort of Energy Unplugged camp for high school students at the Georgia Tech campus. Twenty one high-school students participated in the camp and were exposed to a wide variety of topics including renewable and non-renewable energy, electric vehicles, energy efficiency, energy production and delivery, environmental impacts, and equitable electricity access.
The Energy, Policy, and Innovation Center hosted two week-long cohorts of “Energy Unplugged,” an energy-themed STEAM camp for 35 high school students. Dr. Rich Simmons and Strategic Energy Institute fellow Azell Francis engaged with collaborators from around the state, and led the campers in hands-on interactive demonstrations & experiments involving solar panels, batteries, catapults, water rockets, and remote-control cars.
