ALLIANCE, Ohio — Registration is now open for the 2022 Experience Engineering Summer Camp (EESP), held on campus at the University of Mount Union from June 19-25, 2022, where interested high school students can earn two college credits.
The program, which is in its fifth successful year on campus, is designed for high school sophomores, juniors, seniors, and recent graduates who have successfully completed Algebra I. This one-week program features hands-on learning through projects and experiences in five different engineering disciplines, as well as learning entrepreneurship and business skills.
Participating students utilize Mount Union’s state-of-the-art facilities while experiencing engineering through faculty-led projects and mentoring from current engineering majors.
Project examples include:
- Biomedical Engineering – Use software to perform motion capture of themselves to track their biomechanics
- Civil Engineering – Structure design for earthquake simulation and calculations for optimal tower crane locations
- Computer Engineering – Learn principles of high-level block-based visual programming language algorithm (SCRATCH-MIT) and design their own online digital game
- Electrical Engineering – Explore Arduino microprocessor-based electronic circuits design using Breadboard, LED, Potentiometer, Piezo buzzers, and Photoresistors.
- Mechanical Engineering – Windmill design and construction using gearboxes and tested for power output using wind
- Global Engineering – Explore the concept of being a global engineer and the need for preparing future engineers for the global economy
Students are also given an opportunity to earn two college credits for the EGE 110: Intro to the Engineering Profession course with a small optional tuition fee.
