In weeks one and two, students will receive in-class instruction overviewing modern engineering innovations and the many great engineering achievements in the last century. In the second half of the program, students will be placed into working groups and select a topic from National Academy of Engineering's Grand Challenges for Engineering - a list of 14 game-changing goals for improving life on the planet, identified by an international group of leading technological thinkers from around the world. Students will use their final two weeks focusing on hands-on projects that seek cutting-edge solutions to challenges in four broad realms of human concern: sustainability, health, security, and joy of living.
Students who successfully complete this program will receive college credit. Students must have completed junior year of high school by the start of summer 2022 to attend.
