Raleigh Day Camps @ NC State University
Summer Programs for Middle School Students: For Rising 6-8th Graders
Campers learn in collaborative groups how engineers help society, and they experience engineering themselves through hands-on, creative investigations and design challenges. New activities are introduced each year, and every activity gives a unique perspective on the Engineering Design Process. Past activities have included designing earthquake-proof bridges, solar-powered boats, SNAP programming, nitrogen ice cream and many more fun challenges!
