NC STATE ENGINEERING CAMP

57 students from Triangle Math and Science Academy and Triad Math and Science Academy attended a four-day engineering camp at North Carolina State University. During this camp, students toured facilities and collaborated with their peers to complete engineering challenges. The camp, which ran from June 10th through June 13th, focused on developing student understanding of what engineering is and what the responsibilities are of engineers. Students constructed marshmallow catapults, LED flashlights, egg nests, and wind turbines as part of collaborative engineering challenges designed to help students explore the engineering design process. Facilities tours also exposed students to disciplines within engineering. Students toured the Constructed Facilities Lab to learn more about civil engineering and also were able to tour the Textiles and Physics labs.
