Summer Engineering Academy
SEND A TEEN TO ENGINEERING CAMP AT THE UA
Help us raise $5,000 for need-based scholarships in support of students attending the University of Arizona's Summer Engineering Academy! SEA takes place on the UA main campus throughout June and July, providing engineering education, fun and college inspiration to over 200 students annually.
We will receive a match of $5,000 from a program grant and generous donation if we can raise $5,000! Every dollar donated will be doubled and 100 percent of your donation goes directly to reducing the cost of tuition for students in need. Financial support above and beyond our goal helps us to assist even more campers!
ENGINEERING OUR NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS
The Summer Engineering Academy is a series of six one-week camps run by U of A College of Engineering students, staff and faculty. Camps are open to high school students interested in exploring engineering, math and science. This opportunity exposes students to hands-on lab activities, field trips and collaborative team-building, showing them first-hand how engineers solve real-world problems.
Camp topics are derived from the Grand Challenges for Engineering, with themes ranging from health and security to sustainability and infrastructure. Our vision is to create a world in which the students we educate today engineer solutions for the problems of tomorrow, making our communities healthier, happier and more efficient.
ABOUT SUMMER ENGINEERING ACADEMY
SEA has been an outreach initiative in the College of Engineering for over 30 years. More than 200 students from diverse local and national communities attended camp in 2018; a quarter of them received need-based scholarships to help pay for camp. About 35 percent of students who attend SEA go on to pursue STEM majors at the University of Arizona. We need your help to continue this legacy!
