High School Summer Camps


We are busy putting together plans for Project Discovery 2019!  Sign-up for our mailing list to receive additional information when it becomes available.

Project Discovery is a week long, intensive learning camp for high school students (grades 9-12). New for 2019, we will be offering the residential camp option, as well as a day camp option.  Campers choose from different engineering disciplines and work closely with KU faculty and graduate students as they complete a hands-on project. Held on KU’s Lawrence campus, students will get an up-close view of KU and the School of Engineering classrooms and labs. 

Cost
Includes meals, housing and lab supplies - fees must be paid in full at time of registration.
