summer camps is to introduce various engineering disciplines, 
computer science and construction management to young, aspiring 
high-school students through a set of activities that are fun, 
challenging, and thought-provoking. Students will have the 
opportunity to learn about how engineering impacts our lives 
through participation in various hands-on laboratory experiments, 
design contests and field trips. They will also get a flavor of
