Summer Programs for High School Students at the University of Texas Austin
This academy offers talented high school students an opportunity to discover the excitement of engineering through hands-on experience. Based on the first year undergraduate Design Methodology and Engineering courses, students will work in small teams to design a product from concept to prototyping. Students will learn the importance of teamwork and planning in successfully completing large, complex, time-constrained projects. Learn about material properties, structures, and manufacturing processes. You will present steps to bring a product from concept to functional prototype: defining specs, developing concepts through research and ideation methods, modeling performance, developing working drawings, selecting materials, and constructing, testing, and revising a working prototype. Students must have completed Trigonometry and one lab science course with an A/B letter grade.
