This camp is designed for students new to our summer camps and who want to learn about the full variety of core STEM concepts. Different types of STEM disciplines are introduced each day in a hands-on, student-centered manner. Students will spend each day performing lab experiments and activities designed to give them a broad view of the different types of engineering offered here at Oakland University. For example, elementary students will write computer code in scratch, and high school students will code in Python. Students will make slime to learn about physical and chemical reactions. They will build roller coasters and discuss how kinetic and potential energy affects how they work. These lab exercises are designed to be informative and fun! The types of engineering disciplines covered are industrial, mechanical, electrical, chemical, bioengineering, and computer science. High school students will also have time allotted to learn about the different types of engineering careers and majors!
*Due to ongoing pandemic conditions, summer camp delivery formats are subject to change. Registered attendees will be notified immediately of any changes to OU's summer camps.
