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.

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.
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 will be trained by NC State’s College of Engineering.
Full background checks of all staff members are conducted each season.
