ENGINEERING SUMMER CAMP

 
General Information
Description of ProgramOffers a one-week residential/nonresidential program which will introduce students to electrical engineering and also to computer programming. No background in programming, physics, or advanced mathematics is necessary. Students will investigate concepts in electricity and magnetism by building electromagnets, electromagnetic motors, and generating electricity. They will connect these concepts to larger applications in electrical engineering. The participants will begin to develop their skills in electronics by building some basic circuits and will advance to more complex electronics projects using breadboards and microprocessors. They will each receive a credit-card sized computer called a Raspberry Pi and will learn how to develop code with it. The course will culminate with a project interfacing the Raspberry Pi with electronics components. The students will be able to take home these projects. Throughout this program students will gain insight into how basic engineering concepts relate to the world around them. They will also learn about some of the current developments in the fields of electrical engineering and computer programming. Call for more detailed information.
