Engineering Tomorrow’s Careers (ETC) Summer Camp at UW-Madison: June 17-22, 2018. Interested in STEM? Come spend a week at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and find out what engineering is about! ETC Camp is an exciting way for rising junior and senior high school girls to explore multiple engineering fields through hands-on labs and activities, tours, and talks. Get a feel for our campus and meet new friends (or even future classmates!).
The application for ETC camp is available HERE. Registration is open and will remain open until 11:59 PM CST on March 2nd, 2018. Campers will be notified of their acceptance status by mid to late March via email.
What is the cost of camp? The cost of camp is $250 dollars. Full or partial scholarships will be available depending on grants and corporate donations received. Scholarship information is available here.
Who can attend camp? If you are a female in high school who is interested in learning about any type of engineering, you can apply. This camp is aimed at those who will be juniors and seniors during the 2018-19 academic school year, however, incoming sophomores are also encouraged to apply!
Do you have to be from Wisconsin to attend? No! We have applicants from all over the US! As long as you are a female in high school who wants to explore her options with engineering, you are invited to apply.
Where is camp held? Camp is held on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus in one of the lakeshore dorms, Dejope residence hall. The girls will have breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided throughout the week.
How many girls get to attend camp? This year, 100 girls will be chosen to attend ETC Camp. Campers will be selected based off of responses to the application essay questions, which will be evaluated after the application closes.
Why attend ETC?
Do you get really excited when you think about the complications of the human body? Do you find yourself drooling over your math homework, because you’re just so passionate about trigonometry? (Okay, maybe not that extreme…) Then maybe you should consider engineering! Engineering is a career that uses math and science to solve all different assortments of problems.
Coming to ETC will give you an introduction to the different engineering disciplines available on Madison’s campus, including mechanical, electrical, industrial, biomedical, civil, chemical, and nuclear. At the same time, we will take you on tours to give you an introduction to the UW Campus.
