About Explore Engineering

The UConn Explore Engineering (E2) Program is residential STEM summer camp for current high school sophomores and juniors. During this exciting week at the University of Connecticut Storrs Campus participants explore engineering careers by working in small groups with School of Engineering faculty and students. They will learn what various engineers do in the workplace and see engineering concepts demonstrated. During the evenings, through participation in a Grand Challenge project, students focus on a single engineering discipline. The week wraps up with demonstrations of activities the students created during the week. Examples have included: rudimentary EKG devices, Smart Lego vehicles that can follow a trail, fuel cell and other energy efficient devices, wooden bridges, environmentally friendly processes, and how to resolve differences.
