Another EPIC Summer Concludes
After a month of camps, this summer’s Engineering Possibilities in College (EPIC) program concluded last week with a variety of fun activities, including cardboard boat contests.
During the month of July, middle school and high school students were embedded in Cal Poly’s Learn by Doing philosophy, taking part in fun hands-on activities that involved building, analytical thinking and creative problem-solving.
The unique outreach program, which began with 20 students in 2007, has now grown to over 640. During the camps, students explore the many different fields of engineering while guided by faculty members and current engineering students. Projects include solar cars, rockets, robots, phone apps, bridges and more.
