Interested in taking apart toys and other products to see how they work? How about using 3-D printers to make something?

About the event

Each summer, UB offers an Engineering Design Camp sponsored by Northrop Grumman, where participants:

  • “Tear down” products to learn what’s inside
  • Program and use robots 
  • Design and build using 3-D printers
  • Explore advanced manufacturing through field trips and team-based activities

Activities are guided by faculty and students in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and each student receives a certificate at the completion of the program.

Who can attend

High school students entering grades 9-11 (classes of 2020, 2021, 2022) are eligible to apply for the camp. Students should have strong science and mathematical ability, and an interest in a career in STEM.

We are especially interested in students from groups that are underrepresented in STEM professions. 

Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis until the registration cap of 24 students is reached.

Cost

Tuition for the program is $300. Each student will receive a certificate at the completion of the program.

Engineering Design Camp is sponsored by UB's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Northrop Grumman.
