Summer Engineering Camps for Pre-College Students
Seven fun-filled engineering camps are available for pre-college students in summer 2012. Students in grades 6 through 10 can select a session designed for their age group. Each session's technology, engineering and science modules are tailored to different grade levels so participants can experience activities designed for their interests and background.
Excellence in Technology, Engineering and Science (ExciTES) summer institutes introduce participants to electrical, materials, and civil engineering fields as well as computer science through inquiry-based activities. ExciTES creates awareness of the diversity of engineering and science fields and helps students look ahead to college and technical careers.
Summer 2012 activities will focus on space and robotics. Students will learn the range of engineering and science disciplines required for each of these areas.
This year's ExciTES sessions will take place beginning June 4 and run through August 3. Two 10-day sessions, June 18-29 and July 9-21, offer an enriched program to allow greater exploration of engineering topics.
"ExciTES has served the community for decades. We have parents who attended our engineering camps in the 1980s bringing their kids. The College of Engineering's roots are strong and deep when it comes to K-12 Outreach," said Gabby Gandara, Director of Engineering Student Services.
Space is limited and on-line registration is available. The registration fee is $175. Scholarship grants are available to reduce registration to $100.
