The final Maryland Summer Center Program is set to get underway next week.  The Center for Future Engineers: Robot Design at Frostburg State University will conclude the slate of five Maryland summer center programs for 2016.
The 2016 Maryland Summer Centers Program continues a 49-year commitment at the State level to provide summer educational opportunities for Maryland’s gifted and talented students. The program, coordinated through the Maryland State Department of Education, in partnership with public and nonpublic agencies, provides Maryland’s diverse gifted and talented student population with advanced, rigorous, experiential learning opportunities that nurture these students’ talents and abilities within unique learning environments.

The Center for Future Engineers will offer students a look into the future, allowing them to design their very own robots for a real-world application.  Students in the residential program will define needs based on an actual situation and use creativity, passion, and interest to build the robot.  The center takes place at Frostburg State’s new state-of-the-art Compton Science Center.
