Program Design

Students participate in a multitude of activities to explore engineering and computer science. Here are just a few highlights of what your camper will experience during her week at TEC Camp:

  • Participate in hands-on projects in areas like chemical engineering, aerospace engineering, and web design.
  • Work on a project with a team of other students, and present group findings at the conclusion of the week.
  • Meet and interact with Georgia Tech professors, students, and professional women.
