Application PDF | Camper Packet | 2013 Summer Camp

The goal of the Engineering summer camps is to introduce various engineering disciplines, computer science and construction management to young, aspiring high-school students through a set of activities that are fun, challenging, and thought-provoking. Students will have the opportunity to learn about how engineering impacts our lives through participation in various hands-on laboratory experiments, design contests and field trips. They will also get a flavor of residential college life, and will hopefully build lasting friendships with their peers from other high schools.

High school students interested in science, technology and engineering are encouraged to apply.

Housing

Accommodations will be provided in the residence halls of the university. Participants will be assigned to double occupancy rooms; two rooms with shared bathroom facilities.
