Purdue University Northwest (PNW) and Enbridge are partnering to offer summer enrichment camps for middle and high school students interested in learning more about engineering disciplines.
The Purdue Northwest Enbridge Summer Engineering Camps will take place in June on the PNW Hammond Campus and will introduce students to fundamental concepts of civil, mechanical, electrical and computer engineering through hands-on, laboratory and classroom experiences. PNW offers engineering degree programs in all four disciplines.
Student participants will not only engage in activities that explore various areas of engineering, but learn team building, computer-aided engineering, and decision making. All materials will be provided and attendees will interact with current PNW students and faculty. Awards will be presented at the end of each camp during a closing ceremony Friday afternoon.
Camp dates & details:
The camp for middle school students is June 10-14 and the high school camp is June 17-21. Sessions at both camps meet from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
Students must be entering sixth grade or higher in fall 2019 to be eligible to attend and a letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor or principal is required. The application deadline is May 17 and cost per student is $295.
