Space remaining in engineering summer camps

UWindsor’s Lancer Engineering Summer Camps have limited spaces remaining for some August sessions.

Children ages 8 to 12 can immerse themselves in various aspects of engineering, free of charge.

The summer camp sessions are composed of activities designed to pique interest in the fields of software development and computer engineering, mechanical engineering, and fluid mechanics. Students will be exposed to coding essentials as they are taken through a variety of tasks, including creating a virtual reality space and developing an algorithm for Amazon’s Alexa.

"Engineering’s summer camps have always been a popular part of our outreach program and they continue to be, even as they have shifted to a virtual format during the pandemic,” says Mike Konstantino, engineering’s outreach co-ordinator.

“This year we have introduced new activities related to coding and software and computer engineering and adapted some of our other activities to give a more varied experience to participants.”

Sessions will be hosted on the University of Windsor’s Engineering Outreach Virtual Classroom Blackboard site. Upon registering, participants will receive a link through email.
