CREATEng

Inspiring Future Engineers!

In summer 2015, the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science & Mathematics will deliver CREATEng, a one-of-a-kind, four-day immersion into engineering and design-based thinking for rising 8th & 9th graders in Aiken, Dorchester, Greenville and Orangeburg counties. Working in teams, students engage in a problem-based curriculum where they apply principles of engineering design to solve daily challenges.

CREATEng students:

  • Compete in team-based, hands-on challenges, such as: designing blades for a wind turbine, cleaning up from an oil spill, developing a solar-powered s'mores cooker, or constructing a parachute
  • Interact with engineers on-site and during field trips
  • Develop engineering skills: problem solving, teamwork, data analysis, communication and innovation
  • Build creative confidence

We are no longer accepting new applications for CREATEng.
