Engineering OnRamp Programs
Engineering OnRamp offers a collection of programs for a diverse group of middle and high school students. They strive to provide greater educational opportunities for young people including individuals from educational, cultural, geographic, or socioeconomic backgrounds considered to be underrepresented in engineering. Their programs invite young people to explore engineering disciplines through exciting real-world challenges. Their curriculum takes a holistic approach to learning focused on STEM education, personal and professional development, and college readiness.
Thinkabit Lab Summer Camp
Qcamp for Kids in STEM is a one-week STEM camp for girls and boys entering 6th, 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!
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!
The Joy of Coding
The Joy of Coding is an online course specially created for anyone who wants to experience first-hand the power, and thrill, of coding computers to do amazing things. Created with high school students in mind, it is a great way for anyone to step into the wondrous world of coding. No prior coding experience is required!
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.
