About TryEngineering Summer Institute

Our Engineering Summer Institute Goal

The goal of our engineering camp is to spark enthusiasm in engineering and technology in the next generation of problem-solvers and difference-makers, and position these innovators for long-term success in academics and in life.

How do we do it?

Organized in two-week sessions each summer, on university campuses across the United States, the TryEngineering Summer Institute unites students from around the world -- co-ed, between 13-17 years old -- to:

  • engage in hands-on design challenges
  • experience the work firsthand with behind-the-scenes tours with real-life engineers
  • discover not just what's happening today, but what's coming tomorrow, through conversations with renowned guest speakers and incredible Summer Institute counselors
  • create a future of possibility that is fully realized and present for each and every student
  • build skills and conceptual knowledge through hands-on work doing design challenges and classwork building and creating projects of increasing difficulty

Give us two weeks at our engineering summer camp, and we'll give you a new definition of what it means to be an engineer.
