This is an engineering awareness program which will include lectures and laboratory experiences related to concepts in science and the various engineering disciplines such as civil, mechanical, chemical, electrical, environmental, and computer engineering. Attention will be given to analyzing material properties and how they relate to design of structures. Applying to college and financial aid will be looked into. Career opportunities in engineering and related fields, such as law, education, and medicine will be discussed. Laboratory experiences in aerospace, structural design, green buildings, computer aided design, robotics, and physics, as well as SAT preparation, are being planned. There is no charge for the program to the students. This is a ten-day program which includes all of the following dates and times:
– July 6th and 7th from 8:30 AM to 3 PM
– July 10th through 14th from 8:30 AM to 3 PM
– July 17th through 19th from 8:30 AM to 3 PM
High student interest in the above program has led to the creation of two more programs which are similar in content and are called the Women and Minority Engineering Summer Extension Program I or II for High School Students. It is anticipated that Extension Program I will be sponsored by the New York Building Foundation, and Extension Program II will be sponsored by the General Contractors Association. Student applicants not accepted to the 10-day program will be considered for the six-day program if interested.
If funded, these six-day programs will run:
– Extension Program I:
Friday, June 23
Saturday, June 24
Monday, June 26 through Thursday, June 29, 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM
