The Summer CHOICES Engineering Camp is a popular hands-on learning experience in engineering and science for **6th, 7th, or 8th grade middle-school girls.

The CHOICES summer camp is designed to provide girls with the opportunity to participate in a variety of fun engineering and science experiments led by women engineers (students and faculty) from Lehigh University's P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science. 

Throughout this week-long camp, the girls will be introduced to a variety of fun and challenging activities that are organized by engineering mentors.

Past projects have included:

  • NASA Goddard Space Center Collaboration

  • Rube Goldberg Projects - Engineering

  • Building a water tower - Structural Engineering

  • Assembling & testing fruit batteries - Materials Science Engineering

  • Building a Burglar Alarm - Electrical Engineering

  • Developing a new funny putty- Chemical Engineering

  • Programming a robot - Computer Engineering

  • Purifying muddy water - Civil & Environmental Engineering

  • Field Trip to Bosch-Rexroth

The camp is limited to 20 girls who will work on a combination of individual and team projects throughout the week. On the last day, after lunch, teams present their accomplishments before Lehigh staff and invited family and friends.
