The University of Washington partners with the Chehalis School District to provide a four-day summer STEM camp focusing on engineering and medical science. The 2023 camp will be held August 7-10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is open to all high school students entering grades 9-12. This one-of-a-kind camp offers four days at W. F. West High School. The cost for this extraordinary experience is $25. There are scholarships available, if needed, when registering online.
Students will learn about the Engineering Design Process and its many applications by completing a hands-on project to spark creativity and engage students of all levels. Supported by current undergraduate UW engineering students, staff, and faculty, students will work in small groups to tackle an engineering challenge and learn how their interests and skills can be applied to various engineering disciplines.
Work with scientists from the Institute for Protein Design, a world-class research center focused on computer science and biology. Don’t know how to code? No problem! Students will use the scientific video game Fold It to design custom proteins and then learn how to study them in the lab.
Explore DNA, antibodies, antigens, viruses, and other elements of advanced biology with the Brotman Baty Institute. Students will engage in hands-on activities, expanding and deepening their understanding of precision medicine research.
