During the summer of 2014, EECS provided a computing experience for high school students. In the one-week Computer Science camp that is part of Engineering Summer Camp – Project Discovery students build websites from the bottom up.
When not in the lab with Dr. Gibbons, the campers are taken to a wide range of activities with a resident assistant. Students are given presentations about other engineering disciplines. Businesses in the Kansas City area – such as Perceptive Software – invite the high school students to their site and show them how engineering and computing play a crucial role in their operations. And there are plenty of leisure activities such as bowling, swimming, and movie night to round out the experience.
