Next Engineers Camp is well under way in Cincinnati! For the past two weeks, students from all over the city converged on the Digital Futures Building for a week of immersive engineering experiences, comradery and exploration of essential life skills. Students had the opportunity to tour UC’s campus, engage with volunteers from GE Aerospace, and participate in an in-depth design challenge called “Mind Your Head”. Students also participated in activities that focused on soft skills such as interviewing skills, how to write a thank you note, and more!
The culmination of the Camp is a capstone showcase, where students presented their projects to an audience consisting of other campers, families, and GE volunteers. The presentation portion provides students with important experience communicating in front of a large group. We are so excited to welcome two more groups of aspiring engineers later this summer.
