SAU Engineering Summer Camp at Southern Arkansas University
July 9-11, 2018
Southern Arkansas University is hosting a 3 days 2 nights summer camp from July 9 through July 11. High school students from grades 8-12 are welcome to attend this camp.
To help ensure all interested participants have the opportunity to attend Engineering Summer Camp, the SAU Engineering program is offering four scholarships for top-performing campers this year. Scholarship winners will be selected over the course of the three-day camp (July 9-11), and their registration fees will be refunded by the University after the camp is finished.
The primary goal of this summer camp is to grow interest in studying engineering and physics among high school students. Participants will do hands on projects related to engineering and physics. Engineering projects include building and programming of Lego Mindstorms robots, playing with Arduino based electronics and hardware, designing the path of a robotic arm, building of model bridges and structures, design and modeling with Solid Works, and material testing using a force tester. Activities will include demonstrations in physics, as well as an astronomy night observation. Lodging and food will be included in the price. All participants will receive an engineering T-shirt. There will be an awards ceremony at the end of the 3-day camp on Wednesday.
