Make Smart Stuff:  UD ECE Summer Camp for High-School Students

Description: We are surrounded by smart devices that can sense, think, and act; ranging from everything in your smartphone to all the steps that happen to bring you your next mail-order delivery. These intelligent gadgets are all made possible by technologies invented and used by electrical and computer engineers. In this one-week summer camp, rising 9th and 10th graders will explore the “magic” of how electrical and computer engineers bridge the real world and cyber world to make smart stuff.  Camp activities will include 3D printing of prototypes, programming microcontrollers to make devices sense/think/act, making robots that interact with the world, securing devices and cyberspace using cryptography, and reading someone’s mind with a computer. The camp will also include counseling on planning STEM courses for application to the ECE undergraduate programs.

Who Can Sign Up: Rising 9th- and all 10th-grade students

Fee: $325 (scholarships available on a first-come, first-served basis)

Timeline: 4 days, June 21-24, 2022, from 8:30AM – 4PM
