Partner Summer Programs in North Carolina

We have partnered with groups throughout the state of North Carolina in order to bring engineering summer camp experiences to more children. We hope to offer programs at additional locations around the state in future years. At all locations, students will experience engineering through hands-on, creative investigations and design activities.
