POWER Camp 2008: If you can SEE it, you can BE it!
You’ve heard about engineering, but what is it really? What do engineers do? Engineering is everywhere. Is it for you? Explore engineering with other young women your age at the 3rd annual Preparing Outstanding Women for Engineering Roles (POWER) Summer Camp at the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology, IUPUI from June 15-21, 2008.
Sunday-through-Saturday the POWER Summer Camp gives you the opportunity to explore engineering through hands-on, learn-by-doing experiences. Guided by professors and current engineering students you’ll conduct experiments, innovate, make cool stuff, take things apart and then put them back together again. We offer exciting opportunities to meet a diverse selection of professional women engineers and young college women inspiring to be engineers and spend time checking out up-and-coming technology in engineering through innovation modules.
Get a taste of college life and make new friends along the way by staying in a residence hall with other high school students who share your interests.
Have questions about engineering? College in general? You’ll have time to chat one-on-one with female engineering students who serve as camp counselors. There’s plenty of fun too – from pizza and ice cream to a cookout, or just hang out at the Ball Residence Hall.
If you’ve been wondering if engineering is for you, now’s the time to try it out. You are eligible to attend the camp if you will be a high school sophomore, junior or senior in Fall 2008.
