You will participate in interactive lab and classroom activities in both mechanical and civil engineering. These subject areas are degree programs offered at Purdue University Northwest.

You will:

  • Discover clean energy sources and environmental protection methods
  • Learn Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and 3D print your own cell phone holder
  • Build your own mini-bridge and join in water jet cutting of your mini-space shuttle

…and many more!

Interaction with our current PNW engineering students and faculty will allow you to ask questions, get answers, and help be prepared for college. You also will have the opportunity to visit our brand new PNW Design Studio, THE place for engineering students and Senior Design groups to study and collaborate, give presentations, brainstorm new engineering concepts, and is where our student teams build projects for national competitions.

Daily Schedule

Sessions and activities will be developed for middle school and high school students. Sessions will rotate each day through different engineering areas and topics.

Camp certificates will be presented at the end of the week during a closing ceremony on Friday afternoon.


Open to middle school students and high school students.
