UNCP Hosts Summer Engineering Camps

Engineering Camps

Summer 2017, UNC Pembroke introduced its first annual Engineering Camp Pembroke. Elementary and Middle school kids from around the region participated the day-camps from July 24 through August 8, 2017. UNC Pembroke partnered with the N.C. State College of Engineering and the Engineering Place to present the week-long camps. Campers learned in collaborative groups how engineers help society, and they experienced engineering themselves through hands-on, creative investigations and design activities. Some of the activities included a Nanobug Maze, Marshmellow Catapult, Newspaper Chair and other fun challenges.

UNCP currently offers a 3-plus-2 dual degree engineering program with N.C. State University.  Pictured above are: Jeff Frederick (Dean, College of Arts & Sciences), Dr. Laura Bottomely (Director, NC State's The Engineering Place), Chancellor Robin Cummings, and Mary Beth Locklear (Director, Office for Regional Initiatives, who sponsored UNCP's Engineering Camps).
