Oklahoma Camps

The following camp directory lists some of the summer camps for K-12 students in engineering throughout the United States and Canada that are and were previously offered. The directory lists camps that have been hosted by Universities and research centers in the past. Please note that all camps may not be offered every year and that new camps and programs are currently being added. Old or unsuccessful programs are always being eliminated or modified. A substantial number of programs specifically target minorities, women, and other groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences. The programs offered change frequently, and this database is not comprehensive. This is only meant to be a guide to aid your search for engineering education preparation tools. Many of the programs offer scholarships and may have application deadlines as early as January. If you are interested in a program, please email, call or write the organization listed for an application and the most current information available.

Oklahoma Christian University
Introduction to Engineering

Is engineering or computer science for you? Use your creativity and innovative ability to solve challenges and make the world a better place. This one-week summer camp for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors has a theme of renewable energy, from wind to solar. You will build components, work with object-oriented programming, use 3-D graphics in a simulation, develop sensors, and do wind tunnel testing. We will help you understand what you will be equipped to do if you major in electrical, mechanical, or computer engineering, or computer science. Four faculty, one from each program, will teach the course.
