Summer Engineering Experience: SEE@ASU
The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering are happy to announce the launch of SEE@ASU Virtual 2020! This virtual Summer Engineering Experience will have many of the same elements and activities as the in-person camp, but the new virtual platform allows us to expand the camp in many ways and we are looking forward to the flexibility it will afford our participants.
Join other motivated high school juniors and seniors for an exciting introduction to the engineering profession, faculty, students and the innovative programs offered at the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. You’ll get a taste of the university experience, learn more about 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.

Scholarship/Fee Reduction Request: We understand that cost can sometimes be prohibitive, and strive to lessen that barrier when possible for those in need. If you’re interested in receiving a scholarship/fee reduction for camp, please complete the Scholarship/Fee Reduction Request form below. Scholarships/fee reductions will be evaluated on a rolling, first-come-first-serve basis. Please allow 1-2 business days for notification about your scholarship status.

The participant will have 48 hours after notification to complete their registration and submit payment.
Tentative Daily Schedule:
The below schedule is tentative and may evolve before the start of camp:
10AM – 12PM: Morning Session
12PM – 1PM: Team Meetings/Independent Working
2PM – 4PM: Afternoon Session
4PM – 5PM: Team Meetings/Independent Working
5PM – 6PM: Optional team building and fun activities
The morning and afternoon sessions will be structured to include approximately one hour of active learning with a simulation, activity, or Zoom meeting/presentation from a faculty member, followed by one hour of individual learning to complete modules. Students will be assigned to a team on the first day of camp and will be tasked with an engineering challenge that culminates in a virtual showcase on the last day of camp. Twice daily, students will participate in Team Meetings, hosted on Zoom and overseen by the Coordinator, or work independently on individual projects.
There will be optional evening programming for participants every day except Friday. Evening programming will include virtual games and team-building activities.
Technical Platforms and Requirements:
Students will participate in activities through two platforms: Canvas and Zoom. Canvas is a classroom-style platform that will be used for recorded video lecturers, readings, activities, and assignments. Zoom will be used for interactive lectures and activities, informational webinars, and team meetings. Interactive sessions will have appropriate safety measures in place to maintain a safe, private, and productive learning environment.
Students must have access to a computer/laptop with a reliable high-speed internet connection. Students are also strongly encouraged to have a web camera, either integrated or external, to be used for team meetings and interactive sessions.
