Brilliant Discoveries Evolve From Rich Experiences

Due to the uncertainty of the times, we will not be running week-long camps for the summer of 2021.

We will be offering single day events, with age-specific content.  If safety permits, they will be in-person events.  If safety is still a concern, they will be virtual events.  Camps will be run on a “first come, first served” basis.

If you interested in learning more, please email Mel Jurist, Camp Director, at mjurist@udel.edu.

Hope to “see” you this summer!

High School Internship Program

UD K-12 Engineering announces the opening of applications for the High School Internship Program.  Internships are, in general, not paid.  Further, this year, internships (depending upon the project) may be virtual OR in-person.  Please consider your application carefully.

Engineering internships are open to highly-qualified rising high school juniors and seniors on a competitive basis. As a part of a research team, students contribute to ongoing engineering research, gain insight into lab practices and produce a final research poster based upon their experiences.

DO NOT APPLY IF YOU HAVE A PART-TIME JOB, ARE GOING ON A VACATION OF MORE THAN 3 DAYS, ARE TAKING A CLASS THAT CONFLICTS WITH THE MANDATORY MEETING TIMES, OR CANNOT OTHERWISE ATTEND THE FULL INTERNSHIP.

A Message from Dean Thompson

Engineers are problem solvers, and with the challenges our society faces in human health, climate change and more, we need more problem solvers. When we engage young minds with engineering, we help children understand that they have the power to tackle the world’s problems. We afford them experience not only with the direct underpinnings of engineering, such as physics and chemistry, but also with concepts that are inherent to engineering, such as problem-solving, logic, collaboration, and much more.
