The University at Buffalo School of Engineering and National Grid are sponsoring a 4-day engineering workshop for students entering their sophomore or junior year in high school in the fall. The focus of the camp is to expose students to engineering disciplines and to encourage them to enroll in an engineering curriculum. “The Power Program” includes demonstrations and hands-on activities in engineering design, team building and leadership skills. Students will participate in lab and computer exercises, field trips and recreational activities. This camp is geared for gifted and talented young men and women interested in exploring engineering opportunities.
Up to 60 students are accepted into this program held July 29 through August 1, 2013. The application deadline is May 1. Students are to be nominated for this program by their school administrators. The criteria for participant selection are students with a grade point average of 95, 3.5 or high honors, mathematical ability and an interest in engineering careers.
There is no tuition for this program but a $100 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve the student’s place. University of Buffalo scholarship funds are awarded to all students accepted into this program and who subsequently are accepted and attend the UB School of Engineering. Participants experience the UB campus life, talk with professors and college students from UB Engineering while learning engineering concepts. Students live on campus and are supervised by faculty and dorm counselors.
