The uncertainty of COVID-19 and the short timeframe before summer camps began has prevented the College of Engineering’s K-12 Outreach Program from hosting in-person engineering camps for students. Their solution is a virtual camp experience, free of charge, from July 6th-10th, 13-17, 20-24 and 27-31. The virtual camp will reflect the curriculum of the introductory engineering camps, focusing on the fields of civil, biomedical, chemical, computer science and engineering, aimed at a target audience of 12-14 years old.

Currently, the first two sessions are full, but registration begins soon for the later sessions. 

Using Zoom and offering a hybrid of pre-recorded and live videos for campers, the activities will be conducted with materials and supplies found throughout the home. The videos will be created by faculty and College of Engineering students. 

If you’re interested in registering, you can do so on their website for the Virtual Engineering Everywhere! Summer Camp.
