CEDO Summer Programs
CEDO offers a collection of summer programs for a diverse group of middle and high school students. We strive to provide greater educational opportunities for young people including individuals from educational, cultural, geographic, or socioeconomic backgrounds considered to be underrepresented in engineering. Our camps challenge young people to explore engineering disciplines through exciting real-world challenges. The curriculum takes a holistic approach to learning focusing on STEM education, personal and professional development, and college readiness.
To be eligible for CEDO camps, participants must be permanent residents or citizens of the United States.
Galaxy Girls is a 5-day residential program for current 8th and 9th-grade students, that we refer to as cadets! During the program, cadets will live in University housing, tour campus and become immersed in aerospace engineering and space science. Cadets will have the opportunity to work closely with college students and aerospace faculty by building real rockets for a culminating launch presentation. Learn more about Galaxy Girls.
Summer College Engineering Exposure Program (SCEEP)
SCEEP (Summer College Engineering Exposure Program) is a 10-day residential program for 40-60 current 11th graders. SCEEP will expose participants to various engineering disciplines. Participants work in teams to solve a real-life multifaceted problem using engineering concepts. SCEEP also gives participants a head start on the college application process and a glimpse into life as a Michigan Engineering student. Discover the Michigan Difference and explore engineering to see if it’s your passion! Learn more about SCEEP.
Thinkabit Lab Summer Camp
Qcamp for Kids in STEM is a one-week STEM camp for girls and boys entering 7th and 8th grade, which provides hands-on engineering project experience at Qualcomm’s Thinkabit Lab @ the MEZ.
Qcampers will learn new skills while strengthening their scientific and mathematical understanding through hands-on engineering projects. You will have the opportunity to meet professional engineers, learn about engineering tools and their applications, explore the engineering design process, build your own projects, and meet new friends! Learn more about Thinkabit.
Electrify Tech Camp
Electrify Tech Camp consists of three non-residential summer camps for high school students that are sponsored and run by Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Michigan. Camp participants will be introduced to college-level topics at an introductory level suitable for high school students. Program content is developed and taught by U-M faculty and graduate students, ensuring the highest quality of academic learning. Recreational activities will be incorporated into the activities of each day. Come ready to learn and to have fun!
Summer Engineering Exploration (SEE) Camp
The Summer Engineering Exploration (SEE) Camp is a one week, residential camp for high school students interested in engineering. Hosted by the Society of Women Engineers at the University of Michigan, SEE Camp provides opportunities for the campers to discover the possibilities of engineering.
Girls in Science & Engineering (GISE) Camps
All of our programs include science- and engineering-focused hands-on learning, combined with exploring interesting places on campus. Every summer GISE brings over 150 middle and high school students to campus to participate in our summer programs.
