Burke Engineering Camps in Morganton

Burke Engineering Camp was created four years ago by a small group of elementary school teachers that wanted to see more STEM education available to students in the Burke County area. We have a passion for STEM education. Others also share that passion. NC State University, Burke Development Inc. and Western Piedmont Community College have partnered with us to spread the word about STEM education to students in Burke and surrounding counties. We are so thankful that they are helping to make this possible.

Burke Engineering Camp is an outreach partner of The Engineering Place, the K-20 outreach organization for the College of Engineering at NC State University.
