Physics Inspiring the Next Generation! PING Camp 2018: July 15–21

PING is a STEMtastic summer camp program that actively seeks to increase the diversity of the next generation of scientists, engineers, and technologists. We are seeking current 8th graders (rising 9th-graders), who are interested in science, engineering and math, and a fun, and challenging experience on location at the Green Bank Observatory. While we are especially interested in recruiting youth from under-represented groups, all current 8th graders are encouraged to apply.

Green Bank Observatory is home to the National Science Foundation’s world famous Green Bank Telescope. Students will be immersed in the research activities of this national research center. While in residence, students will work in small teams supported by an undergraduate student mentor and an Observatory staff scientist (astronomer, physicist, engineer, etc.) to conduct research by observing the universe with a 40-foot diameter radio telescope. Supplemental educational activities, including bench experiences building electronic circuits, and coding activities complement the primary research theme. In addition, there is plenty of non-science fun to be had! Whole group seminars can include swimming, hiking, making and dancing – who knows? All activities take place on the Green Bank Observatory campus under the supervision of staff, who include outstanding teachers and STEM undergraduate students.

Space is limited! Please submit all of your application materials by our deadline!

Application Deadline: Wednesday, May 16, 2018
