Engineering a Future - Summer Edition

It's time for 7th and 8th grade girls to register for Engineering a Future: Summer overnight camp for young women interested in becoming problem solvers and creative thinkers.

This is a neat opportunity for young women to spend four days experiencing the ever-changing and exciting field of engineering. Activities are focused on displaying how engineering turns dreams into reality. TTU engineering professors as well as professional engineers will lead team activities. Women engineering students will serve as camp counselors.

The $50 fee covers all activities, meals, and a commemorative T-shirt.
