The University of Maine College of Engineering is offering educational opportunities for 20 middle school students to learn about engineering- and transportation-related careers in a free two-week day camp, July 10–21 on campus.

Students explore all aspects of engineering while participating in leadership and team-building activities, and a series of lectures, workshops, hands-on laboratories and field trips.

The day camp is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays in UMaine’s Foster Center for Student Innovation. Lunch will be offered in a UMaine dining hall; swimming, basketball and other sport activities will be offered in UMaine’s New Balance Student Recreation Center.
