An engineering camp for students interested in STEM careers

UB's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and National Grid team up each summer to sponsor a four-day engineering workshop for Western New York students entering their sophomore or junior year in high school.

About the Camp

The UB/National Grid Camp provides an opportunity for students with an aptitude in math and science to learn more about careers in STEM and experience campus life. 

Typical activities include:

  • Demonstrations and hands on activities in engineering design
  • Team building and leadership skills
  • Lab and computer exercises
  • Field trips and recreational activities
  • Business lunch with National Grid and UB Professionals
  • Meals and lodging

To apply

To apply, an educational reference is required such as a teacher, guidance counselor, or after school program coordinator. Contact information for the reference is required as part of the application, but no letter of reference is necessary. Only students entering their sophomore or junior year in Fall 2019 are eligible to attend. 

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


There is no tuition for this program. A $60 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve the student’s place. Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis to students with demonstrated financial need. Each student will receive a certificate at the completion of the program.
