Summer Engineering Experience (SEE)

WiSTEM Virtual Summer Camp

About SEE

The Summer Engineering Experience is a 2-month virtual camp experience during June and July for rising high school 10th-grade through 12th-grade students of any gender. The experience is designed for participants to explore each engineering major offered at UT Austin and “SEE” engineering through hands-on engineering design challenges, role model engagements, and video content highlighting engineering majors and career paths. The camp includes:

  • weekly SEE informational newsletters (one per week throughout June and July) – each week we will focus on one of our engineering departments to walk through the engineering majors, provide virtual tours, share virtual engineering student panels, showcase engineer professionals, and more.
  • weekly “FabFems Fridays” role model webinars (Fridays 12-12:45 pm CT throughout June and July) with alums, current students, corporate partners and others throughout our community who share their experiences and STEM stories
  • two engineering design challenges (one per month) completed asynchronously at your own pace; final products shared via 2-3 minute video in a camp design challenge showcase; alums, current students, corporate partners and others throughout our community review and provide feedback on all submissions
  • end of camp celebration for participants, family members, and teachers with design challenge showcase and UT Austin admissions presentation

Participants spend 1-3 hours weekly on asynchronous camp activities. Other than the live, 50-minute FabFems Friday webinars, all camp experiences can be completed on your own time and on your own schedule. Each newsletter’s content takes about 30 minutes to read and watch all the videos. Design challenges may take 1-3 hours to complete.
