Minnesota 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.

Are you interested in engineering, medicine, computers, science, and the human brain? BrainSTEM Camp is a one-week program led by Shattuck-St. Mary’s BioScience and Engineering program directors, Dr. Maren LaLiberty and Mike Boone. Students will discover the similarities and differences between computers and the human brain by studying basic circuits, dissecting a brain and spinal cord, testing their own reflexes and building a working circuit board to understand how information is transmitted by humans and computers. This year’s camp will be held June 14th – 19th and is open to rising 7th – 10th graders.
