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.
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:
Students are nominated for this program by a school representative. The school representative can be a counselor, teacher, or principal. The principals of participating schools in Erie and Niagara County have been provided with a link via email to the application, along with a user name and password. The student can only get the user name and password from the person who recommends them for the camp.
We are especially interested in students from groups that are underrepresented in STEM professions. Two entering sophomores and two entering juniors from each high school may be recommended.
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.
