Engineering 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 - 11th graders)
  • Women in Engineering Camp (rising 9th - 12th graders)
  • The Future of Paper, Pulp and Paper Camp (rising 12th graders)
  • Computer Science and Arts for All- Jr. (rising 5th - 8th graders)
  • Computer Science and Arts for All- Sr. (rising 9th - 12th graders)

Registration information for each camp can be found below:


Senior Tigers Engineering Camp: July 11 - 16, 2021
For rising 12th graders 
Price: $750
This is a residential camp. Throughout the week, students will explore the different engineering majors while participating in hands-on activities. Sessions will be led by engineering faculty members, Auburn Engineering students and engineering organizations. If you have any questions, please email Auburn Youth Programs at auyouth@auburn.edu. We hope to see you at camp!

Junior Tigers Engineering Camp: July 11 - 15, 2021
For rising 10th - 11th graders
Price: $650

This is a residential camp. During the week, students will explore the different engineering majors while participating in hands-on activities. Sessions will be led by engineering organizations, faculty members, and current Auburn Engineering students.  If you have any questions, please email Auburn Youth Programs at auyouth@auburn.eduWe hope to see you at camp!


Women in Engineering Camp: July 11 - 14, 2021
For rising 9th - 12th graders
Price: $550

This is a residential camp. The camp will focus on issues important to women in the field of engineering. Sessions will be led by engineering organizations, faculty members, alumni, and current Auburn Engineering students. If you have any questions, please email Auburn Youth Programs at auyouth@auburn.edu. We hope to see you next summer at camp!

While this program is open to ALL students, it is designed to encourage and foster support for girls and women who are interested in developing Engineering skills and careers. 


The Future of Paper (Pulp and Paper Camp): July 18 - 20, 2021
For rising 12th graders
Price: $25.00 application fee

The Pulp & Paper Camp, conducted by faculty, staff, and students from Auburn’s Alabama Center of Paper & Bioresource Engineering, is open to science-loving rising 12th graders who are interested in learning more about the power of paper for everyday life and the growing pulp and paper industry. Students interested in pursuing a degree in engineering (specifically chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or biosystems engineering) are encouraged to participate in the pulp and paper summer camp to learn more about the Pulp, Paper, & Bioresource specialization at Auburn University and the Auburn Pulp & Paper Scholarship opportunities.

Campers will learn about paper and papermaking firsthand, as well as participate in hands-on papermaking and texting experiments, tour a local paper mill, and learn about engineering at Auburn University.


Computer Science and Arts for All- Jr.  Hybrid Camp Application
For rising 5th - 8th graders
June 14 – 18, 2021
Price: Free

CSA4ALL-JR program is a combination of an online and an on-campus project where students will learn about the basics of robotics, programming, and music composition. We have experts in Computer Science and Music fields working on maximizing the efficiency and quality of the materials. The main steps of the curriculum are:

(1) Introducing students to CS concepts and skills using Scratch music-related games. 

(2) Introducing students to music-based storytelling using existing videos to teach melody, rhythm patterns. 

(3) Teaching basics of music programming using EarSketch. 

(4) Teaching students how to compose specific rhythm patterns and melody patterns using EarSketch. 

(5) Introducing social robots and the features of Lego Ev3 robots. 

(6) Teaching how to synchronize their social robots with their musical composition. 

(7) Providing an opportunity for student presentations in a dancing robot competition.

Sessions will be led by Computer Science and Software Engineering graduate students and Dr. Daniela Marghitu.   If you have any questions, please email Dr. Daniela Marghitu at marghda@auburn.edu. We hope to see you at camp!
