Wichita State camps introduce students to engineering, sciences

This summer’s student camps at Wichita State University’s College of Engineering drew nearly 300 students from across Kansas, the university said in a written statement this week.

They took part in eight full- and half-day weeklong camps on the campus, the university said.

The camps are meant to foster children's interest in engineering. Students program robots, create video games and build micro-controllers, the university said. They work in teams, solve problems and innovate.

The college has run these camps for eight years. They are meant to introduce fourth- to 12th-grade students to engineering and inspire them to pursue an education in science, technology, engineering or math, the university said in the statement.
