Engineering Camps

  

Do 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 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)
  • Auburn Engineering Summer Expo (rising 9th-12th graders)
  • The Future of Paper, Pulp and Paper Camp (rising 12th graders)
  • Computing and Robotics for All (rising 7-8th graders)

Registration information for each camp can be found below:


Senior Tigers Engineering Camp: July 16 - 21, 2022
For rising 12th graders 
Applications will open December 1, 2022
This is a residential camp. Throughout the week, students will explore the different engineering majors while participating in hands-on activities. Sessions will be led by engineering faculty members, Auburn Engineering students and engineering organizations. If you have any questions, please email Auburn Youth Programs at auyouth@auburn.edu. We hope to see you at camp!

Auburn Engineering Summer Expo: June 23, 2022 from 8:00 AM - 5:00PM
For rising 9th - 12th graders
Registration will open in Spring 2023

This is a one-day program. During the day, students will explore the different engineering majors while participating in hands-on activities to tackle challenges for a particular theme. Sessions will be led by engineering organizations, faculty members, and current Auburn Engineering students.  If you have any questions, please email the Office of Recruitment, K-12 Outreach, and Scholarship at futureengineer@eng.auburn.edu. We hope to see you at camp!

The Future of Paper (Pulp and Paper Camp)
For rising 12th graders

The Pulp & Paper Camp, conducted by faculty, staff, and students from Auburn’s Alabama Center of Paper & Bioresource Engineering, is open to science-loving rising 12th graders who are interested in learning more about the power of paper for everyday life and the growing pulp and paper industry. Students interested in pursuing a degree in engineering (specifically chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or biosystems engineering) are encouraged to participate in the pulp and paper summer camp to learn more about the Pulp, Paper, & Bioresource specialization at Auburn University and the Auburn Pulp & Paper Scholarship opportunities.

Campers will learn about paper and papermaking firsthand, as well as participate in hands-on papermaking and texting experiments, tour a local paper mill, and learn about engineering at Auburn University.


Computing and Robotics for All(CR4ALL)
For rising 7-8th graders
CR4ALL developed by the Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science and Software Engineering Departments, as part of a new National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Teachers  Award, will introduce students to computing and robotics, computational thinking concepts and applications using cutting edge computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics programming frameworks.
