You Decide

Summer Engineering Experience (SEE) for Girls 
Carnegie Mellon University College of Engineering will host the Summer Engineering Experience (SEE) camp virtually in July 2021. Through funding and support provided by the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Technology Alliance, Qualcomm, Bosch, and Carnegie Mellon University’s College of Engineering this is a free program.
The camp will run from approximately 9:00 – 1:30 each day, featuring a combination of lectures, group worktime, independent making activities, and facilitated special projects. It is critical that all attendees have ready access to a computer (Mac or PC – even smartphones will work) and a reliable internet connection. While much of the content will rely on online systems like Canvas and Zoom, not all time will be spent at the computer. With discussions and demonstrations from CMU faculty, staff, and students, SEE attendees will explore Engineering in a variety of disciplines, in addition to creating and showcasing their own projects in a presentation at the end of the week.
Space is limited. Interested applicants must apply by April 30, 2021. All application materials should be returned to me electronically at Visit the SEE website for more information.
