Thanks for your interest in Explore Engineering!

We are awaiting for the University to release guidelines for summer camps and programs for summer 2022. We are hopeful to have our program resume “normal” operations with in person experiences and housing at the Storrs campus. We will update as soon as we receive further guidance.

About Explore Engineering

The UConn Explore Engineering (E2) Program is typically a one-week 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 the YESS Program, students focus on a single engineering discipline by fabricating a discipline-specific device. The week wraps up with demonstrations of items 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.
