In Summer 2021, the Illinois Aerospace Institute (IAI) summer camp will be a one-week virtual program for students entering grades 9-12 who are interested in learning about the field of aerospace engineering. Though most of the students who attend are from the Midwest, students come to us from all over the U.S. and internationally. Many campers have some sort of experience with the aerospace field, through model rockets, remote control airplanes, or having a family member who is a pilot, but no experience is necessary; just an interest in learning about the field of aerospace engineering. Due to Covid-19, the Institute will be conducted virtually.  Students will learn about a variety of topics regarding, engineering through discussion sessions, demonstrations, and hands-on activities.

There is a fee of $50.  Participants will need to have access to a computer, Zoom, a scientific  calculator, and ordinary school supplies (ruler, scissors, etc.)


Complete application form.

Deadline is March 31, 2021 for Session 1 and April 30, 2021 for  Session 2.

The Illinois Aerospace Institute is sponsored by the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Illinois.
