Do you like building projects or figuring out how things work?  If so, then you might be an engineer.

EPIC- Engineering Possibilities in College - is a one-week summer camp at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo that introduces campers to the varied fields of engineering through hands-on labs taught by university professors and industry professionals.  EPIC campers see "Learn by Doing" in action when Cal Poly students show them the satellites, prosthetic hands, race cars, concrete canoes and other products they've developed.  In addition, EPIC campers get to design, build and test their own projects!

EPIC provides an opportunity for campers to experience life on a university campus and meet others who share their interests.

If you are currently in grades 6-11, you are eligible to apply for the EPIC 2018 summer camp.  The camp camp dates are:

July 8-13:                     Session 1 — Middle School Day Camp & Residential Program Option (grades 6-8)

July 15-20:                   Session 2 — High School Residential Program (grades 9-11)

EPIC 2017 Camper

I got to explore what it really meant to be an engineer. I fell in love with the campus at San Luis Obispo. But most importantly, I got to see more of the world of engineering and all the different majors within. Throughout this experience, I learned that I don't really enjoy computer science as much as mechanical engineering and building something with my own hands that others can use to better their lives. This experience has helped me get a better idea of what I want for myself. It has helped me figure out my future and the path I want to take.
