The LSU College of Engineering is proud to offer two residential engineering summer camps to qualified high school students. These programs give high school students the chance to explore, create, experiment, build, code, design, and compete in a variety of engineering and college preparatory activities. The camps are held every summer on LSU’s Baton Rouge campus where college faculty and college students interact with attendees through a number of hands-on workshops and activities. The signature event at both camps is the week-long “Design Project Competition” in which students compete on teams to design, build, and present a project.
