Engineering summer camp | Business
The University of Alabama in Huntsville will be offering an engineering summer camp this year for rising high school juniors and seniors.
The week-long day camp is designed for high school students interested in learning more about the challenging opportunities in the engineering profession. This unique camp incorporates active participation in a broad scope of learning experiences including "hands-on" lab experiments, group projects and lectures by engineering college faculty.
The 2011 camps will be offered July 11-15 on the UAHuntsville campus.
Some of the engineering topics to be covered include: bridge design, chemicals reactions, rocket launching, robotics, and circuits & sensors. "With so many activities, students don't have to face another long, boring summer," said Engineering Dean Shankar Mahalingam. "This camp will teach valuable skills that may help young adults get a jump on their career or help prospective students decide which careers might interested them. Through summer camp, young people learn independence, decision-making and how to get along with others."
The camp also emphasizes character development through cooperation, teamwork and respect for other people.
Each day, the camp runs from 8:30 a.m to 4 p.m. Enrollment is limited to 20 students per session. So avoid the race for space and sign up today! The fees for each session (one week) of the camp are $350. Fees include all activities, lunch, instruction & supervision, and materials that will be provided when the student arrives at the camp.
A limited number of partial and whole need based scholarships will be available for the summer camp.
