University of Arkansas College of Engineering Summer Programs


youngling_2We are excited to announce the 2014 University of Arkansas College of Engineering Summer Programs. Programs are for rising 4th to 12th grade students which are designed to introduce engineering through hands on activities that are fun and educational. (Read more)

The Robotics Engineering Camp is for rising 4th – 7th grade students to explore robotics engineering. Students will spend the week designing, building, programming and testing LEGO MINDSTORMS robots. We are offering two section of Robotics camp this year. Section 1 will be June 16 -20th, 2014. Section 2 will be July 7 -11th, 2014.

The Engineering Girl Camp is for rising 8th and 9th grade girls. Previous programs looked at alternative energy options by building small windmills and solar cars, used 3-D software to design a novelty box and learned how to use a set of motors and controllers to design and operate a miniature elevator. Participants also explored engineering though field trips to see the daily operations of engineers in industry. Engineering Girl Camp will be held July 14 – 18th, 2014.

The Explore Engineering Programs I and II are for rising 6th – 9th grade students to learn about a different area of engineering each day.  Students will explore civil, chemical, computer, electrical, industrial, and mechanical engineering through activities that are centered around robotics, electronics, structure design, water filtration, roller coasters, chemical reactions, and much, much more! EEP will be held June 23-27th, 2014.                       

The Engineering Summer Academy is for rising 10th – 12th grade students.  Students will select between chemical engineering, the Razorback Solar Boat Competition, and computer science/computer engineering to explore a specific area in more depth.  ESA will be held July 27 – August 2, 2014.

Worried about paying the program fee?  No worries!  We offer need-based scholarships to help participants overcome the financial burden.
