EPIC (Engineering Possibilities in College) is a summer camp for middle and high school students (7th-12th grades) to learn about engineering and experience hands-on labs in a university
atmosphere. EPIC oers an
opportunity for students to
explore the dierent types of
engineering programs available at Cal Poly and other universities. There will be three sessions of EPIC in 2014 on the Cal Poly campus in San Luis Obispo. Grade levels are based on the grade a camper will be in the fall of 2014. Students who are going to be a rising senior should attend Session 2, if possible. This session will focus on preparing for college.Session 1: July 6 – 11 10th - 12th Grades (Residential)Session 2: July 13 – 18 11th - 12th Grades (Residential)Session 3: July 27 - Aug 1 7th - 9th Grades (Day Program with Residential Option)The goal of EPIC is to expand the College of Engineering mission to K-12 students: “To educate students for careers of service, leadership, and distinction in
engineering or other elds by
using a participatory, learn by doing, ‘hands-on’ approach.”EPIC students attend several hands-on labs throughout the week. The following Engineering
Labs are oered:
Aerospace, Architectural, Biomedical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Industrial, Manufacturing, Materials, Mechanical, and Software. In 2014, EPIC camp will include additional labs from the College of Architecture and Environmental Design. EPIC campers will tour the exciting Cal Poly engineering labs as well as local engineering companies, such as Diablo Canyon Power Plant, Trust Automation, Lockheed Martin, Zurn Wilkins, Applied Materials, Melfred Borzall, or Next Intent.EPIC isn’t all work and no play. Students will be able to meet other students through fun activities on Cal Poly’s campus, such as bowling, rock climbing, hikes to the Cal Poly P, and lawn games. There is also time to listen to speakers from various engineering companies, learn networking skills, and play games.
There will even be raes to win
