Students test their gliders in the Atrium during Thayer's first Summer Engineering Workshop.
Students entering grades 11 or 12 in the Fall of 2016 who are interested in exploring engineering, working collaboratively, and being creative are invited to apply.
Applications will be available in early January of 2016 and will be due in late February.
Admission will be based on your personal statement and interests. We are looking for a diverse group of students who are interested in gaining a better understanding of engineering in general, and engineering at Thayer, in particular.
Preference will be given to students who have not attended a previous Design it! Build it! workshop since the main goal is to introduce high school students to engineering.

Partial need-based scholarships are available; please download the Scholarship Application (PDF) for more information.
Applications are due in late February of 2016 but will be accepted after this date if space is available. Enrollment is limited to 30 students and last year we had a long wait list so please submit your application early.
