Faculty Outreach Opportunities
The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering hosts a variety of on-campus activities, after-school programs, summer camps and collaborations with faculty and engineering student organizations in an effort to engage Arizona’s K-12 students and create pathways that encourage them to become technically savvy, prepare for studies in science, technology, engineering and math-related fields (STEM) and pursue careers in engineering. Through creative hands-on activities, we hope to inspire these young students and show how engineering impacts our lives every day. Below is a list of opportunities for you to get involved whether for research or your own passion for education.
Fulton Outreach Activities
A Day in the Life Of…Field Trip Days
Throughout the year, we will be working with Arizona schools to bring school-aged children to both the Tempe and Polytechnic Campuses to experience the life of a Fulton Engineering student. Faculty involvement can range from tours of your lab(s) to hands-on activities to even a brief presentation about the research that you do.
These events will take place throughout the year, at both our Tempe and Polytechnic campuses. Dates are designed for specific grade levels. We anticipate a capacity of 120 students per date.

Fulton Schools of Engineering Summer Academy
Summer Transportation Institute
Week-long residential program at the Polytechnic campus. This program is designed for high school students interested in learning more about engineers and the ways in which they impact our world and society. The Summer Transportation Institute engages students in projects and field trips that demonstrate how all types of engineers (from aerospace to software) plan and maintain our systems of transportation around Arizona. Have a lesson or a lab that you would like to incorporate? We would love to work with you whether for an hour, half day or anything in between.
|Applications will be accepted and reviewed until all slots are full|
Fulton Summer Academies
The Fulton Summer Academies give elementary and middle school students the opportunity to explore engineering through engaging, hands-on activities and field trip visits to various locations around campus. Through these experiences, students gain an understanding of how engineers are improving the world each day through creative problem solving to make us healthier, safer and more comfortable. Camp topics for summer 2018 are still being determined. Past camps include: Renewable Energy; Mechanical Animations and Automata; Mitigation of the Urban Heat Island; Physics Camp; and Coding Camp. If you have research or experience in one of these areas and would like to provide activities, please contact us.
SEE @ ASU
Six-day residential program. High school seniors come to campus for an exciting introduction to the engineering profession, faculty, students and the innovative programs offered at the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Students learn more about academic expectations and university life, and start to think about how you might take advantage of the many opportunities available to our engineering students. During your week at ASU, students visit research labs and learn about undergraduate research opportunities at the university and in industry. Time commitment is two to three hours one day a week for three consecutive weeks, with the same lesson each week.
Custom Fulton Schools Summer Academy
Faculty develop and manage their own program. Customize your own summer camp by taking your research and teaching from the university classroom to children ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade. Camps can run between June and July and range from one to five days, with multiple sessions possible based on demand. Faculty manage their own programs including: identify space, managing registration lists and communication, developing curriculum, collecting fees if applicable, and ordering supplies. The K-12 Outreach team can assist with parts of the summer camp. If you are planning to hold a camp during summer 2017, please fill out the our Fulton Summer Camp Intake Form.Access 2017 Fulton Summer Camp Intake Form
