Engineering Capstone Camps

The University of Texas at Dallas, Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science is one of the premier engineering schools in North Texas. This year we would like to invite local high school students participate in the building of a solar car and/or the quad copters that can be used in competitions around the country. This is a great opportunity for high school students to experience a challenging engineering project.

Solar Car Camp

Date: June 17 - July 12, 2013
Time: 9am - 4pm
Ages: 14-17 years old

During this 4-week camp we will be building a solar car to attempt a 100 mile road trip. During this intensive engineering course students will learn about solar power, battery power, software, and mechanical design as we put together a solar car that the students will be able to drive safely on the roadways. This camp is intended for students who are interested in engineering as a career.

Cost:Thanks to a grant from Texas Workforce Commission the registration fee of $1,200 will be waived for qualifying students. Students will need to fill-out the application COMPLETELY in order to qualify.
