Local high school students to learn about sustainable engineering, college prep and career options
To introduce local high school students to college and career opportunities in engineering, the Fenn Academy in Cleveland State University’s Fenn College of Engineering is hosting the Pathways to Engineering Summer Camp. As part of this year’s Clean and Renewable Energy theme, students will experience hands-on engineering activities, learn how to prepare for college engineering programs and be exposed to potential engineering career options.
Applications are now being accepted through June 1 for the day camp which begins June 14 and continues through June 30. Students who are entering their junior or senior year of high school are eligible to apply for admission to the camp, which will be held at CSU’s Main Campus (Downtown), Lorain County Community College (Elyria) and CSU’s East Campus (Solon).
Presentations and hands-on activities in the areas of engineering design, wind energy, solar energy, and fuel cell technology will be conducted at each of the three locations. Campers will also be exposed to real-world engineering examples and insight by traveling to area businesses and institutions.
Additional highlights will include a challenge to design a green toaster, work with scaled-down wind turbines, an egg drop competition, science experiments, work with a fuel cell-driven toy car, energy audits and guest speakers.
