An EPIC Cal Poly Summer Camp

 

Middle school and high school students interested in engineering are getting a close-up look at what it would be like to study at Cal Poly through EPIC (Engineering Possibilities in College), a series of four week-long camps held on campus.

Middle school and high school students interested in engineering are getting a close-up look at what it would be like to study at Cal Poly through EPIC (Engineering Possibilities in College), a series of four week-long camps held on campus.

EPIC, taught by Cal Poly professors, students, alumni and industry professionals, began in 2007 with 20 female middle and high school students. Today it welcomes over 640 participants, who experience Cal Poly’s Learn by Doing approach early.

While the program seeks to encourage female, first-generation and low-income students to become engineers, the camp is open to all students. Last week middle school students programmed games, built models of the heart, constructed robots, and tested water samples, among other things.

The next three weeks, EPIC will host high school students.
