SEE UA! Camp at the University of Akron is an engaging one-week residential summer camp for high school girls entering the 9th through 12th grades in fall 2014. The camp immerses the girls into biomedical, civil, chemical, electrical, and mechanical engineering. Each day is comprised of fun-filled hands-on engineering activities in the morning that are led by our talented faculty, followed by dynamic tours of local engineering firms and then campus-wide activities in the evening. The campers also spend the week working as a team on an engineering design project or research project and then compete against other camp teams at the end of the week. Campers live in residence housing located on campus where the resident assistants are upperclass engineering students. While there, the girls can experience the life of a college student while exploring various engineering disciplines available at The University of Akron. Day camp is available for students that have evening obligations.
