Exploring Mechanical Science and Engineering is a week-long residential program that introduces high school rising juniors and seniors to the field of Mechanical Science and Engineering. Mechanical Engineering is all about building things! Mechanical engineers understand how machines work and how to design and construct new ones to solve challenging problems in the world. This camp will explore many of the exciting new topics in mechanical engineering, such as:
- constructing wind turbines to harvest clean energy from nature
- building robots to explore and clean up hazardous waste
- creating prosthetics to help injured people walk again
- making water treatment systems that run on sunlight for the developing world
Campers will get hands-on experience building and designing machines that make the world a better place, using all their creativity and problem-solving skills. The camp will also include field trips to on-site labs and nearby research and manufacturing companies.
