Bringing engineering to life across North Carolina through outreach, mentoring and education
The NC State College of Engineering offers week-long summer day camps for elementary school students in Raleigh and partner locations: Charlotte, Hickory, Morganton and Rocky Mount. Campers learn how engineers help society, and they experience engineering themselves through hands-on, creative investigations and design activities. New activities are introduced each year, all of which give a unique perspective on the Engineering Design Process. Some previous exciting activities have involved designing extreme water slides, solar cities, heart valves, jellyfish and many more!
