Highlights from Camp

EXPERIMENTS IN ENGINEERING

See engineering in action when you work in teams to conduct hands-on experiments in engineering. Guided by University faculty, you'll learn what distinguishes chemical, civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering and engineering technology. The five engineering topics will be offered daily, and groups of 20 students will rotate through the topics during the week.

LEGO ROBOTICS GROUP PROJECT

Explore engineering fundamentals from a first-year engineering class through an exciting robotics project. Small groups of students will build robots and use computer programming to make the robots solve specific problems. Your team will have the opportunity to compete with others as well as make adjustments to your designs as they develop.

INNOVATION MODULE

During a three-hour period, you'll participate in an innovation module and be challenged to let your creativity reign — apply your brainpower to engineer and solve a problem.

DINNER WITH ud engineering students

Have questions about engineering? You'll enjoy dinner with University engineering students from various engineering majors. Find out what it's like being a college student majoring in engineering!

GRADUATION CEREMONY

The program will close with a graduation luncheon and award's presentation. You'll be able to share your activities with your parents — and relive them yourself — as you watch a slide presentation of the week's events.

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES

There are plenty of fun social activities too. Interact with your peers, counselors, faculty and staff at a cookout, pizza party and ice cream social. Play a pick-up basketball game, conquer the climbing wall or use the pool in the RecPlex — the University of Dayton's recreation and fitness complex. Enjoy billiards, bowling and video games in the Hangar — the student union game room.
