CREATEng is a one-of-a-kind, four-day immersion into engineering and design-based thinking delivered in satellite locations across the state. Working in teams, students engage in a problem-based curriculum where they apply the principles of engineering design to solve daily challenges.

Each camp serves 60 students and will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. There is an early bird registration fee of $225 per camper if paid with submitted application before April 11, 2016. Following that, the cost increases to $250 per camper. This includes all instructional materials, a T-shirt, lunches and snacks. Need-based scholarships are available.
