Jackling Introduction to Engineering

June 21-25, July 5-9, 2020

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 to help meet the needs of the 21st century. In the future, engineers will continue to use their cleverness to meet the world’s biggest challenges.

Camp Activities

Explore Engineering

  • 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.

The Program

  • You will 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 department visits in the afternoon, and test your skills in friendly student competitions during the evening.

Daily Schedule

  • Morning - Lectures and demonstrations
  • Afternoon - Visits to and hands-on activities in departments, labs and computer labs
  • Evening - Meet Missouri S&T students, participate in design competition and participate in recreational activities

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 as many as possible.
