PNW offers week-long camp for middle and high school students interested in a hands-on learning experience
Purdue University Northwest and Enbridge are partnering to offer enrichment camps this summer for middle and high school students interested in learning more about engineering disciplines.
The Purdue Northwest Enbridge Summer Engineering Camps are scheduled in June on the PNW Hammond Campus to introduce students to fundamental concepts of civil, mechanical, electrical and computer engineering through hands-on, laboratory and classroom experiences. PNW offers engineering degree programs in all four disciplines.
Camp dates & details
The camp session for middle school students is June 5-9; the high school camp is June 12-16. Sessions of both camps meet from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
Student cost is $295. The application deadline is May 12. Students must be entering sixth grade or higher next fall to be eligible to attend. A letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor or principal is required.
Students attending either camp will participate in activities that explore various areas of engineering. All materials will be provided and attendees will interact with current PNW students and faculty. Guest speakers from local industry will discuss career opportunities in engineering. Awards will be presented at the end of each camp during a closing ceremony Friday afternoon.
Enbridge and Purdue Northwest announced a partnership last fall in which Enbridge would become the named sponsor of the Purdue Northwest Enbridge Summer Engineering Camps. Enbridge’s Chicago Region transports North American crude oil and natural gas liquids from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the Great Lakes Region and beyond. Enbridge is regionally headquartered in Schererville and operates a terminal for its liquid transportation system in Griffith.
