Engage & Empower
Applications for consideration are due September 3, 2019.
Designed for high school students, grade 9-12.
The world needs today’s students to become tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and researchers. Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics—STEM—is vital to growing our community. This Camp has the capacity to engage, educate, and empower students to pursue higher education and a career in a STEM field!
Twelve high school students interested in engineering and sciences will be selected for a five-day camp during which they will learn about preventing engineering hazards. Biologic and geophysical investigation data and water quality measurements collected will help students strategize Foundation Designs and Contamination Prevention Methods for a building scenario indicative of our Cave and Karst landscape.
