NEW Curriculum Each Summer

The program guides students through the engineering design process as they tackle exciting engineering design challenges throughout each week-long program. Students will also learn about the National Academy of Engineering’s 14 Grand Challenges and the careers available to them in the various fields of engineering.  Click here to learn more about our curriculum.  Click here to read descriptions about our specific topics being offered this summer. 

Each summer the curriculum changes, so no camp experience is ever the same!

Each team of campers is led by one certified teacher or in-progress college engineering major. All staff will participate in a selective hiring process and attend two extensive trainings, one led by NC State’s College of Engineering and one by Cynosure Learning L3C.

Full background checks of all staff members are conducted each season.

Flashback to Past Seasons

We had SO much fun during our past seasons.  Our campers studied aerospace, mechanical, and civil engineering in our first ever specialty weeks.  We had K2 students reading stories and solving problems the main characters had using engineering.  We had high school students designing and presenting prototypes to address one of the 14 Grand Challenges of their choice.  We had elementary and middle school students communicating and collaborating their way through the engineering design process to solve problems from a multitude of engineering disciplines.  Want to see?

COVID protocols

Engineering Camp Charlotte takes the health and safety of its campers, staff, and community seriously.  We will continue to follow the recommendations in place from Queens University and will update this section with 2021 specific information as it comes in.  In 2020 the following adjustments were made to our normal programming: smaller group sizes and spaced out room locations, all materials sanitized before distribution, cleaning of hard surfaces in rooms between activities, no lunch in the dining hall, no all camp morning/afternoon gatherings, camper and staff temperature screenings, masks worn by campers and staff, and hand sanitization/washing during each transition (ex. arrival, activities, lunch, snack, and departure).
