At Ohio State, we like to think of engineers as the people who make our world a better, safer, and more exciting place to live. All of our engineering students, from incoming freshmen to fifth-year seniors, engage in real-world problem solving designed to prepare them to confront the most pressing problems of the 21st century. From harnessing sources of renewable energy to developing life-saving and cost-effective medical treatments, engineers will ensure the survival of all communities, be they local, global, virtual, or ecological.
We encourage all students from kindergarten through 12th grade to explore the exciting world of engineering. And whether these students go on to earn their engineering degree at Ohio State or at one of the hundreds of other engineering programs located across the country, we challenge each and every one of them to become innovative thinkers with the skills, knowledge, and creativity to make a difference in communities worldwide.
So, what are you waiting for?
Go For It! Become an Engineer!
Engineering Summer Academy
The Engineering Summer Academy is a three-week program consisting of 72 hours of classroom and laboratory instruction (Monday through Saturday). Students are expected to devote their study hours to the mental discipline of a concentrated academic experience.
The academic experience includes problem solving and introduction to computer systems, including CAAD, spreadsheets, and editors. The course, Engineering H191, includes methods of problem solving, algorithmic development, and introduction to three-dimensional orthographic and pictorial visualization and presentation.
To be selected for this program, students must have completed their junior year in high school. Additionally, it is recommended that students rank in the top 10 percent of their high school classes and show strength in mathematics as demonstrated by the PSAT.
Engineering Summer Experience
This course will provide the student the opportunity to be both introduced to the fundamentals of engineering and immersed in a robotics experience that will serve as an exciting, popular vehicle for the delivery of those fundamentals. While the focus will be on robotics, the course will introduce the student to the various engineering disciplines and teach him or her some engineering fundamentals. These basic engineering topics will include the engineering design process, teamworking skills, engineering drawing and communications, elements of problem solving with computers, simple programming elements and logic, and engineering professionalism and ethics. Approximately 60% of the available time will be spent with the students in 2- or 3-person teams in the hands-on activities of designing, building, programming, and testing small autonomous robots made from the LEGO™ Mindstorms NXT System kits. The other portion of the time will be spent on learning engineering fundamentals, touring on-campus University laboratories, doing robotics research, and developing and practicing engineering skills. An introduction to solid modeling and working with the Autodesk™ Inventor computer-aided design application will be included. An interactive bridge-building computer application will also be introduced.
Dates: June 23-28, 2013

Ohio Supercomputer Summer Institute
SI is a two-week residential program that gives gifted Ohio high school students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year project-based, hands-on learning. Working in small peer teams, the students use supercomputers for practical applications such as solving complex science and engineering problems, conducting network forensics to catch hackers, studying the spread of the bird flu and designing computer games.
Ohio high school students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year are eligible to apply.
High achieving students who like science, engineering, mathematics, or computers may want to attend this camp for exposure to world of supercomputers and their real-world applications, and to gain a competitive edge in future educational and professional pursuits. Students will work directly with experts in science, engineering and computer science, learning how to work with others while developing project management and interpersonal skills, developing friendships with other students who have similar interests, and experiencing a taste of college life
Application: Students are selected through a competitive application process. A submitted application does not guarantee participation.
Cost: There are no tuition fees or charges for materials.Students will be responsible for housing / meal costs which are approximately $500.00 for the two weeks.
