Summer engineering workshop for students entering grades 11 and 12

Are you curious about engineering? Interested in taking an interdisciplinary approach to engineering? Would you like to combine your interests in art and engineering? Or music and engineering? Or energy and engineering? Do you like building and making things? If you responded 'yes' to any of these questions, then the Design it! Build it! workshop might be for you!

Be creative! Design, analyze, and build engineering prototypes and gain some engineering skills along the way. Collaborate with Thayer faculty, staff, and students.

Take a look at videos and photos from previous years for an even better overview of the workshop!
