MagLab Camp TESLA

For the summer of 2021 the MagLab is offering a virtual Camp TESLA for boys and girls (rising 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th graders) who want to work on hands-on science and engineering projects, meet role models, and interact with scientists and engineers, all while learning about the MagLab and science across the world.

During their experience, campers will receive:

  • An exposure to a wide range of science and engineering disciplines.
  • STEM experiences (labs, lectures, and demonstrations).
  • Opportunities to collaborate with other TESLA campers.
  • Interactions with scientists, engineers, and science educators.
  • Materials to participate in STEM projects.
  • A unique MagLab Virtual Summer Camps T-shirt.

After consulting safety guidelines from the CDC and FSU, we have decided that the MagLab's 2021 summer camps will be virtual experiences. These camps will still include hands-on experiences and interactions with STEM professionals. Camp applications will be opened in early March. Please visit this webpage again or sign up for our Educator's Club to receive more updates. Thank you for your patience.
