Engineering & Science Summer Experience

Engineering & Science Summer Experience

Calling All Future Engineers!

This summer experience is a week-long engineering and science academy offered by the
Tagliatela College of Engineering. Participants in the program discover the excitement of working on engineering and science projects in a university environment. University of New Haven faculty and staff lead a variety of activities. Some of the activities in the past have included:

  • Computer Science – Discover how to write your own computer software! Make your own version of well-known video games. Participants will learn how to use free tools so they can continue the projects after the program.
  • Aeronautics – Learn how airplanes fly! Spend time investigating the shapes of wings and airfoils and how different designs affect the way they fly.
  • Alternative Energy – Learn how renewable energy works! Construct your own solar panel tracker.
  • Civil Engineering – Learn how to make your own concrete! Spend time mixing concrete and then testing to see how much force it can take before it breaks up.

Other activity areas:

  • Forensic Science • Mathematics
  • Photomodeling • Chemistry

Participants will have an opportunity to learn about careers in engineering — through these hands-on activities and many others.

University of New Haven faculty and staff supervise all classroom and project work. They
have outstanding backgrounds in many different areas of engineering, technology, and
science, combined with a genuine interest in working with young people who show an
aptitude for science, math, engineering, and technology.
