Middle School Girls

Engineering Options for Middle School Girls

The College of Engineering and Computer Science has cancelled the OPTIONS 2020 summer programs due to COVID-19. Your interest in our engineering outreach program is much appreciated. Please look to our website for updates by no later than December, 2020 for summer 2021 program dates.

Hosted by the University of Evansville College of Engineering and Computer Science, the camp is designed to give middle school girls a better understanding of what types of opportunities are available in fields most closely related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through hands-on projects and other activities. Team-building and confidence-building activities are also part of the fun.
