IEEE TryEngineering Summer Institute - University of California, Riverside

Riverside, United States
Target Applicant:


TryEngineering Summer Institute (formerly Summer Camps) are two week co-ed residential summer camps for rising 8th through 12th grade students held at four premier colleges and universities across the USA. Students participating in the TryEngineering Camps will be immersed in engineering!  They will work in teams with other students, be inspired by professional engineers, and learn about cutting edge research done at the host schools by current graduate students.

Students will participate in a broad range of hands-on activities throughout their two weeks on campus, including working in teams to solve engineering challenges — such as building and launching rockets, building a robotic arm out of everyday materials, and designing and soldering working circuits. They will experience problem-solving and troubleshooting, and gain insight on what it is like to study engineering in a college atmosphere.

Students will explore many engineering disciplines, including electrical, civil, mechanical, chemical, and aerospace, and see how engineers work in teams to solve global challenges.  Students will leave having forged new friendships, developed a sense of what engineers do, explored engineering career and degree options, and experienced living and studying at a top university or college.
