Curriculum Changes EVERY Summer
NC State University develops the curriculum. 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, NC State changes the curriculum, so no camp experience is ever the same!
Each team is led by a Team Leader, an Assistant Team Leader and a High School Assistant Volunteer. 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.
Full refunds will be offered before May 1, 2017. Between May 1 and June 1, the program will refund $300. No refunds after June 1, 2017, unless we are able to enroll another student from a waitlist.
