Engineering Summer Camps

Tigers camp participantsDo you like math and science, interested in how things work, enjoy problem solving and like working with a team of people?

If so, you might be a future engineer. From defense and infrastructure to telecommunications and consumer electronics, engineers make the world a better place. An engineering degree can also open doors to careers in business, law and medicine. The options are limited by only your imagination!

The Samuel Ginn College of Engineering wants to expose middle and high school students to the world of engineering through our summer camps.  The camps will be conducted by faculty, staff and students from the college who will ensure students receive a broad overview of the engineering profession by participating in a number of hands-on activities. 

We will be offering the following camps this summer:

  • Senior Tigers Engineering Camp (rising 12th graders)
  • Junior Tigers Engineering Camp (rising 10th and 11th graders)
  • Women in Engineering Camp (rising 9th — 12th graders)
  • Computer Science for All Girls (CS4ALL-G) (rising 4th — 8th graders)
  • Mentoring Alabama Girls in Computing (MAGIC) (rising 9th - 12th graders)
  • Robotics and Game Development (rising 6th — 10th graders)
  • Cyber Security Camp (rising 9th - 12th graders)

 

Registration information for each camp can be found below:

Computer Science for All Girls (CS4ALL-G)
For rising 4th — 8th grade girls
**Dates coming soon**
This residential and commuter camp is directed by Dr.Daniela Marghitu, professor of the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering.  This camp aims to foster interest in computer science among girls by providing an engaging and active programming development experience using CS Unplugged kinesthetic activities and Microsoft Kodu to teach basic computer programming skills in a fun environment.


Mentoring Alabama Girls in Computing (MAGIC)
For rising 9th — 12th grade girls
**Dates coming soon**
This residential and commuter camp is directed by Dr.Daniela Marghitu, professor of the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering.  MAGIC (Mentoring Alabama Girls in Computing) camp is an annual summer camp conducted in the Computer Science and Software Engineering laboratories at Auburn University. This camp aims to inspire high school girls to have an active participation in computer science related majors and careers. To pursue this goal MAGIC is going to add an extensive authentic learning environment that has personal and industry relevance in both computational and artistic domains by utilizing the power of Scratch and EarScratch environment tools.

Robotics and Game Development
For rising 6th — 10th grade students
**Dates coming soon**
This is a non-residential camp directed by Dr.Daniela Marghitu, professor of the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering.  This program introduces advanced computer science and computational thinking concepts through hands-on application of game design and development and robotics.

Cyber Security Camp
For rising 9th - 12th grade students
**Dates coming soon**
This is a residential camp directed by Dr.David Umphress, professor of the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering. This course offers students the opportunity to gain valuable experience investigating computer crimes, processing digital evidence and employing tools and techniques used by federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies.
Working in Computer Science and Software Engineering laboratories, campers will begin with a quick overview of computer basics and then begin learning the science and art of investigating computer crimes. Campers will learn how to collect and preserve digital evidence using real-life investigative procedures and practice. Students will also have the unique opportunity to meet digital forensic experts and learn about careers in this fast-growing field.
