Join in a summer workshop that offers a hands-on introduction to engineering, science, and mathematics opportunities right in your back yard. Start your personal journey of career discovery this summer at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus.
These week-long sessions sponsored by the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering are for high school students entering grades 9, 10, 11, and 12. Students attend the camp from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. each day.
During your week on the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus, you will participate in many activities led by University scientists and engineers including:
Engineering, science, and mathematics will come alive as viable careers.
Staff and students will help you experience campus life, learn more about academic programs, and explore potential careers through:
After students are accepted, a $50 registration fee is required, with scholarships available for students demonstrating financial need. Email Dorothy Cheng at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a need-based scholarship.
