Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do I need to have taken certain science or math classes to fully participate in the camp?
No, all are welcome. But – you will be working with science and math during the day, so bring your enthusiasm for these subjects and you’ll do well.
Can I register for more than one program?
Students will be asked to rank our five programs in preferential order when applying to Electrify. Since this is a highly sought after program, students will be admitted to one program in an effort to welcome as many students to the camp as possible. Should any last minute slots become available, students will be contacted to join a second program if they are interested.
What is the age range?
Electrify Tech Camp is open to any student that has completed at least one year of high school by June 2020. Students entering 9th grade in Fall 2020 are not eligible.
Is Electrify a residential summer camp?
No, Electrify is a commuter camp. For information on drop off and pick up locations and times, visit our logistics page.
Who will be teaching the program?
Sessions will be taught by University of Michigan ECE faculty, and they will be assisted by current graduate and undergraduate students. All instructors and aids will go through a background check prior to the start of camp.
If I do not live in the United States am I still able to apply?
International students are welcome to apply, but must be enrolled in a high school grade level to be eligible. It is not always possible to secure a translator, so a proficiency in English is required. Housing is not provided for any Electrify student, and would be the responsibility of the student attendee to secure housing and daily transportation to/from campus.
Will food be provided each day?
A light breakfast will be offered each morning. Students will eat as a group for lunch, and will receive a snack in the afternoon. All are covered in the registration fee. Allergies are taken into consideration and are clearly marked, though students with specific needs are welcome to bring their own food if desired.
