Rising high school juniors and seniors
SIGN UP HERE TO JOIN OUR SUMMER CAMPS MAILING LIST.
Come see how your math and science talents can pave the way for a rewarding career in engineering!
Engineers are the change agents of our society. Few professions have such a direct and positive impact on people’s lives. Through research and innovative solutions to real-world problems, engineers constantly re-invent the machines, processes, structures and gadgets that improve our daily lives. By applying science in bold new ways, engineers use their imagination to turn ideas into realities that help us meet the needs of the 21st century.
In the future, engineers will continue to use their cleverness to meet the world’s biggest challenges.
Deciding on an engineering career can be difficult, especially if you’re not sure exactly what being an engineer involves. Whether building blast resistant buildings, producing clean energy, designing components for automobiles, or a exploring the wide variety of other engineering jobs, this program was developed to give you, high school juniors and seniors, first-hand knowledge of what engineers actually do.
This “Intro” course will help you understand how math and science relate to engineering, and if engineering is a career choice for you.
During "Intro" you’ll learn what engineers really do and the tools they use. We'll introduce you to engineering’s various disciplines through hands-on activities and team design competitions while you make new friends and enjoy a taste of campus life.
During "Intro" you'll have plenty of time to meet new friends and work on design projects. Cheer on your peers while you learn about a future career in math and science.
You’ll spend your summer camp mornings learning about engineering disciplines from leaders in their fields while rubbing shoulders with some of the brightest students in the nation. You’ll gain practical engineering experience during lab and industry visits in the afternoon, and test your skills in friendly student competitions during the evening.
Your introduction to Missouri S&T and the world of engineering will include plenty of challenges and a lot of fun.
Attendees will have an opportunity to visit five academic departments for hands-on experiences. An overview of each discipline will be given on the first day of camp. You will then have the opportunity to select the departments you'd like to explore in more depth. Although all of your top choices can not be guaranteed, we will do our best to ensure you attend some of them.
