Start solving the world’s sustainability issues at summer camp! Teens empower themselves with knowledge through fun hands-on engineering projects and tours. Read More!
The UVM/GIV Engineering Institute summer camp enrolls approximately 100 high school students, freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. "The Institute focuses on implementing sustainable engineering practices, which is the challenge all engineers and scientists currently face -- how to use global resources in sustainable and equitable ways," says Bernard "Chip" Cole, Interim Dean of the UVM College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences. "These students will be empowered with knowledge on how technology impacts our world." Through hands-on engineering projects, laboratory experiences, faculty presentations, and enlightening tours, teenagers will work on real projects in project groups using systems approach solutions. Start solving the world’s sustainability issues now! Projects include:: Renewable/Sustainable Engineering, Robotics Systems, Aerospace Engineering, and Engineering Design Challenges. Each student will select a first choice project and will submit an essay delineating the reason why and how research in this area will impact our world. Recognition will be given for Sustainability, Benefit to Humanity, Cost Benefit Analysis, and Communications.
