Here's a summer camp with an ENERGETIC TWIST. Middle school kids can explore the mysteries of engineering and the electrical world. These camps are led by UMD faculty, students, and staff. Students build and design fun projects, use advanced university equipment, practice creative thinking skills, and most of all - have fun!

The Swenson College of Science and Engineering often offers summer camps for boys and girls.These classes were offerd in 2014.


Learn about the magical things possible with electricity and electronics. Students will have daily exposure to current topics in electrical engineering, including LED lighting, digital systems, sound generation, control, and more! Campers participate in hands-on, safe activities that apply engineering concepts to real-life, real-fun projects that participants can take home.


Enjoy engineering fun for boys and girls! These camps introduce middle school children to the four branches of engineering: chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical. Hands-on activities led by UMD professors and students demonstrate the usefulness, and the fun, of engineering. The sessions also encourage creativity and innovation. Participants can take the projects home at the end of the camp.
