Engineering Exploration Camp 2018

Engineering Exploration Camp 2018

This camp is designed for students who are new to our summer camps and want to learn about the full variety of core STEM concepts. Different types of engineering 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 write code in Python to be introduced to coding. Students will make slime to learn about physical and chemical reactions. They will build roller coasters and discuss how kinetic and potential energy plays a factor in how they work. These lab exercises are designed to be informative and fun, with a big ‘wow’ factor attached. The types of engineering covered are industrial, mechanical, electrical, chemical, bioengineering, and computer science.
