It was hard to choose my favorite experience because I loved everything, but getting a peak at college life was amazing. Anything we did on campus was so much fun to me.

Former Computational Science Participant

My favorite experience was being able to code and learn independently.

Former Robotics Program Participant

My favorite experience of the program was then we got to build something and destroy it in the end.

Former Engineering the Built Environment Participant

Thank you for doing this class! This camp reminded me why I like debate so much and I needed that. This is really cool because I’m getting exposed to different things. Thanks!
