South Carolina 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.

WISE--Women in Science & Engineering
Do you ever wonder who created and designed that cell phone you can't live without? What about those great colors in the new makeup lines -- where do they come from? And how do they make those great designer jeans. Engineers and scientists created them all. There are many exciting opportunities for women in engineering and science, and Clemson's WISE introduces rising 8th grade girls to all the possibilities during this one-week residential camp.
