KU School of Engineering Summer Camps
A limited number of openings remain for engineering summer camps for high school students at the University of Kansas School of Engineering.

The school offers two different weeklong camps, one for high school girls entering ninth through 12th grade in the fall, and one for high school boys entering 10th through 12th grade in the fall. Both camps give high school students a chance to try their hand at an engineering project as they learn more about engineering principles.


Project Discovery

Project Discovery is a weeklong residential summer camp for high school girls interested in engineering. Two sessions are offered and campers can choose from six different engineering disciplines. Campers work closely with KU faculty and graduate students as they complete an engineering project. Participants get an up close view of KU and engineering facilities. KU engineering students serve as camp counselors.

Session 1 of Project Discovery runs from June 14 to June 20. Session 2 is from July 12 to July 18.

The cost is $400 and covers housing, on-campus transportation, meals and laboratory materials.


KU Survivor Engineering Camp

KU Survivor: Engineering Outback is a weeklong, guys-only intensive learning camp in July for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. The camp lets students explore the different engineering disciplines through classes led by KU faculty. Campers also work on an engineering project during the week. KU engineering students serve as camp counselors.

KU Survivor runs from July 19 to July 24.

The camp costs $500 and covers housing, meals, on-campus transportation and laboratory materials.
