TryEngineering Summer Institute

An exciting two-week, on-campus engineering camp for high school students held at three premier universities across the United States in 2019.

2023 Dates Coming Soon!


This #GivingTuesday, donate to our need-based scholarship fund and send teens to the TryEngineering Summer Institute in 2021!

Today, you can change a life.

The TryEngineering Summer Institute gives teens the opportunity to explore a variety of engineering disciplines through hands-on design challenges, field trips, industry speakers, and more. The 2-week, on-campus program is ideal for students who are considering a degree or career in engineering, as well as for those that are just curious to learn more. 

Over 30 deserving high school students have been awarded full scholarships to the TryEngineering Summer Institute in the past.  Students described the experience as engaging, memorable, and fun, and several expressed interest in becoming engineers as a result of the experience. Here’s a video that highlights the experience of Kyra, one of our 2019 scholarship attendees. 

Please help us to make this and more happen in 2021. 

The TryEngineering Summer Institute will be held again in the summer of 2021, and we once again hope to help provide scholarships to students that might not otherwise be able to take advantage of this experience. 

We created this campaign for everyone to contribute at various levels. Review the ways that you can make an impact for our next generation of engineers, and please share this page with your family and friends. The process is fast, easy, and secure. 

Your involvement is critical to helping build a more diverse engineering workforce for the future.

Thank you again for your help.
