Temple University's College of Engineering is offering an exciting, one- week residential summer program for female high school students entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year. The program features:
- Hands on projects in robotics, bioengineering, environmental engineering, civil & mechanical engineering
- Field trip to NASA
- Interact with professional female engineers
- Experience dorm life
As a comprehensive public research university, our 37,000 students can choose from 8 campuses (international campuses in Rome and Tokyo) and 300 academic degree programs. Ranked the most diverse university in 2008 by the Princeton Review, Temple offers a comprehensive educational experience at an affordable price. Home to cutting edge research labs in the field of renewable and alternative energy, the
College of Engineering is at the forefront in training the next generation of engineers.
Experiencing dorm life is an important part of this program. Impromptu social events such as movie night, ice cream and tea night enrich student experience. Upon arriving, each student receives a dining card which gives them access to the student dining. Students come from around the country and this if a great opportunity to meet and interact with people from diverse backgrounds.
Field trips and interaction with professional engineers gives the participants an opportunity to experience the importance of engineering and to be motivated. Field trips in the past have included visit to NASA, Philadelphia Water Works, Turner construction, L3 communications etc.
