Why You Don’t Need Engineering Experience to Attend the Summer Institute

The TryEngineering Summer Institute offers students incredible hands-on experiences in engineering and exposure to the top engineering campuses, companies, and centers, plus the opportunity to meet real-world engineers. Clearly it is going to be the perfect two-week summer camp for kids who are all about engineering!

But the Summer Institute is also the perfect camp experience for teens who are just beginning to explore the field, and even those who aren’t sure they’re interested in engineering at all. The only requirement for our program is a keen sense of curiosity.

Is your teen curious about …

  • Living on a college campus?
  • Exploring a new city?
  • Meeting new people?
  • Going outside of their comfort zone?
  • Gaining self-confidence and independence?

Then your teen belongs at the TryEngineering Summer Institute! Register now.

Our program is designed to introduce teens to the field of engineering, but they will come away with improved teamwork, communication, and creative thinking skills that will transfer to many facets of their lives, including their future field of study (in any discipline) and career. They’ll have the chance to live like college students on a prestigious campus, explore a new city, meet new friends, and get to know themselves in a way they never have before.

Of course, our hope is that they’ll also develop such passion for this exciting field that they will choose to pursue degrees and professions in engineering!

Our Introductory Program is perfect for students embarking on their first exploration of the engineering field. Anyone interested in learning more about this field will be challenged and inspired through fun and engaging classes and activities, field trips, speakers, and more.

Students who are returning to the Summer Institute for a second year, or who already have a strong grasp on engineering concepts, will benefit from our Advanced Engineering Program. The curriculum and coursework in this program builds in intensity, perfect for older and more experienced students who want to deepen their understanding of the engineering field.
