In response to COVID-19, the College of Engineering is canceling its 2020 Engineering State youth summer camp.
Day 1: Welcome to Utah State!
Participants check in at the dorms for a four-day adventure that begins with get-to-know-you games and an opening session with the Dean of the College of Engineering. You'll learn what a professional engineer does in a day-to-day career and meet the instructors you'll be learning from the rest of the week. Later that day, we'll travel to First Dam for canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, a climbing wall, barbecue and more!
Day 2: Up for a Challenge?
This is where the fun begins. During your stay at Engineering State you'll attend mini courses called Challenge Sessions. These sessions are designed to introduce the various aspects of engineering. After lunch, we'll travel to the Space Dynamics Lab for a tour and presentations on the latest in space technologies. Did you know USU has sent more student-built experiments into space than any other university in the world?
Day 3: Engineering Makes the World a Better Place
Throughout the Challenge Sessions, you'll get a chance to learn about all the areas of engineering we teach at Utah State. We'll introduce concepts in biological engineering, civil and environmental engineering, electrical and computer engineering and mechanical and aerospace engineering. Later, we'll attend a presentation about Engineers Without Borders - a team of students who travel the world to help people solve problems related to human health, habitat and the environment.
Day 4: Making New Friends
Attending Engineering State is like getting a taste of college life. You'll make new friends, experience new things and create lasting memories. On our final day, participants attend a closing ceremony featuring an exciting guest speaker and catered luncheon. Parents are invited, too. And here’s the best part: this is when we announce our award winners and scholarship recipients! Did you know you can receive a USU scholarship just for attending Engineering State?
