Summer Camp for 7th through 10th Grade Students:

This day program is designed for girls and boys entering 7th through 10th grade in Fall 2014.  Students will explore disciplines of engineering offered at the Lyle School of Engineering; electrical, mechanical, civil and environmental engineering through hands-on, interactive projects. 

This camp is for students who have an interest in engineering, but not an expertise.  By the end of camp, the students will have a solid foundation on which to build on and encourage them to engage more actively in their math and science classes upon their return to school.
