Engineering Summer Camps

Tigers camp participantsDo you like math and science, interested in how things work, enjoy problem solving and like working with a team of people?

If so, you might be a future engineer. From defense and infrastructure to telecommunications and consumer electronics, engineers make the world a better place. An engineering degree can also open doors to careers in business, law and medicine. The options are limited by only your imagination!

The Samuel Ginn College of Engineering wants to expose middle and high school students to the world of engineering through our summer camps.  The camps will be conducted by faculty, staff and students from the college who will ensure students receive a broad overview of the engineering profession by participating in a number of hands-on activities. 

We will be offering the following camps this summer:

  • Senior Tigers Engineering Camp (rising 12th graders)
  • Junior Tigers Engineering Camp (rising 10th - 11th graders)
  • Women in Engineering Camp (rising 9th - 12th graders)
  • Robo Lab Camp (Rising 5th - 8th graders)

 

Registration information for each camp can be found below:
