High School Engineering Programs Suggestions?

Hi all! I'm currently a junior and I'm really passionate about engineering. I've been trying to find some exciting high school engineering programs to attend, but I'm overwhelmed by the options. Can anyone recommend a program that had a positive impact on them or someone they know?

Hey there! It's fantastic that you're so passionate about engineering and looking for programs to participate in. It can indeed be overwhelming with so many options out there, but I'm here to make it a bit easier for you!

One popular program that I've heard great things about is MIT's Engineering Design Workshop (EDW), which takes place over the summer. It's an immersive experience where attendees work on various design projects and receive guidance from MIT engineering faculty. The program covers topics like mechanical, electrical, and software engineering, so it's perfect for students who are exploring the different fields.

Another option you may like is the Summer Engineering Exploration (SEE) Camp at the University of Michigan. It's a weeklong residential program where high school students participate in a mix of hands-on projects, lab work, and even field trips. The emphasis is on exposure to multiple disciplines and seeing what sparks your interest the most.

Lastly, if you prefer a flexible online experience, consider checking out Coursera or edX courses in engineering subjects. They provide access to resources developed by top colleges and universities, allowing you to explore a topic at your own pace.
