Imagination is a hands-on science and engineering summer day camp for rising 7th and 8th graders.
If you get tired of doing the same old thing all summer, then you may want to consider attending Imagination 2016. You will be introduced to the exciting and fun "stuff" we do at Virginia Tech. We have engineers, scientists, and college students who are ready to help you explore the world of technology, engineering, and science--not by watching, but by DOING!
Monday, July 10 – Friday, July 14 and
Monday, July 17 - Friday, 21, 2017
You choose which week you would like to attend.
Please note: Transportation will be provided to and from Roanoke during the second week only (July 17 - 21).
Rising 7th or 8th graders are invited to apply. Preference will be given to first time applicants. Imagination is part of the partnership between Virginia Tech's College of Engineering and Roanoke City Schools. However, the College of Engineering encourages students in Montgomery County and the surrounding counties to participate in this summer experience.
Wear what you usually wear to school, but keep in mind that some of the labs may be messy.
All students are covered by comprehensive accident and hospitalization insurance from the time they arrive until the time they leave campus. The Schiffert Student Health Center on campus is able to handle most problems. Please remember insurance will only cover the time between your arrival to and departure from campus.
Imagination 2015 will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the Virginia Tech campus. Transportation will be provided from Roanoke to Blacksburg and return during the second week only (July 17 - 21).
