This weeklong program is designed to introduce high school students to electrical engineering. Students will participate in two hands-on electrical engineering projects and interactive mathematics laboratory projects.
Students will discuss electrical circuit design and assembly. Students will then apply what they’ve learned by building their own electronic products.
The students will build their own AM radio and electronic musical keyboard trainer. With these projects, students will explore principles of:
- Electrical engineering
- Simple circuits/voltage/amperage
- Analog/digital circuits
- Mathematical concepts
- Assembly of electronics
The students will work with engineering professors to build the AM radio and the electronic musical keyboard trainer. Through classroom instruction and laboratory resources, students will gain the knowledge and skills to complete electrical engineering projects.
Who should attend?
This camp is open to high school students with interests in science and math and those considering electrical engineering or computer engineering as possible college majors.
Students will stay in Pierson Center, a modern campus residence hall. Students should bring bed linens, pillows, and towels. Meals will be provided in the university’s dining hall.
Students will be treated to social activities that may include: movies, bowling, table tennis, billiards, and video gaming (Kinect, Xbox 360, Wii). Additionally, students may take part in free-time activities such as volleyball, basketball, softball, and Frisbee golf.
EE Summer Camp 2012 will be June 17 (with evening check-in) through June 22 (with evening presentations) at Indiana Tech in Fort Wayne, Ind.
Registration will be limited to the first 30 students who apply, so please register early. Register with a friend and each of you will receive a $25 discount.
With payment by May 7, the cost for the camp is $525, which includes project materials, room and board plus all camp activities and a camp T-shirt. After May 7, the cost is $595.
