Transportation Engineering Camp
Campers will have hands-on lab activities, go on local supervised field trips on the UNC Charlotte campus, and learn about the transportation field directly from transportation and civil engineering professionals and experts. Hands-on practical application will include a balsa bridge competition and many other activities. This summer camp is a partnership between UNC Charlotte's Civil and Environmental Engineering Department and Camps on Campus and is a grant-supported educational activity with the US DOT University Transportation Center CAMMSE.
Fire Science, Engineering, and Emergency Services
This camp is all about the "science of fire" and the engineering technology used for prevention, detection, and suppression of fire in residential and commercial structures. Led by Captain Jonah Smith of the Charlotte Fire Department, who is also a Fire Science professor, high schoolers will get first hand get hands-on experience with fire hoses, forcing Entry, fire apparatus, and observe fire behavior. Note: students will not be interacting directly with fire during the camp
