The Student Learning and Achievement Aerospace and Mechanical (SLAAM) Engineering Summer Academy is a non-residential summer program aimed at academically talented and motivated high school students. SLAAM provides opportunities for students to pursue their intellectual curiosity and meet others who share their engineering interests, talents, and abilities. SLAAM is a selective and competitive program for high-achieving high school students who wish to engage in meaningful science and engineering research and professional development. Students may attend one or multiple summer sessions. The 2023 summer program will be HYBRID, where most of the program will be remote, with certain activities held on campus.
- Applications must be received by March 31, 2023.
- Decisions regarding the SLAAM program will be emailed by April 14, 2023
The cost for participation in the two-week program is $775. This fee includes costs associated with science and engineering materials and supplies.
Sections fill quickly, so prospective scholars are encouraged to apply for admission as early as possible to ensure their desired session offerings. If accepted, a SLAAM staff member will contact you with the decision via email. Applicants who are not accepted into the SLAAM program or are waitlisted will be notified through email.
