Registration is open for next summer's Purdue University Seminar for Top Engineering Prospects (STEP).
STEP is a one-week camp for high school students entering their senior year who are interested in studying engineering. It provides an opportunity to explore disciplines within engineering and the careers for which an engineering degree can prepare a student.
Participants are chosen on the basis of academic performance and work on teams using imagination and creativity to solve a multifaceted design challenge. Students will be involved in collaborative classroom experiences that will help them develop the skills that engineers need.
STEP students will tour departments within the College of Engineering and visit local companies where engineers work.
The program runs from Sunday afternoon through lunch on Friday. Students stay in campus residence hall rooms.
Two sessions are available: July 13-18 and July 20-25. Cost is $910 for those who register by March 31; $960 after that.
The application and more information are available at https://engineering.purdue.edu/Engr/InfoFor/Honors/STEP
