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.

EPIC 2015 (Session 3) surpassed all our expectations! My son had a blast, and came home with some clear hopes and plans for himself in the field of Engineering. He left with a comfortable grasp of what each of the fields of Engineering is all about.  I was impressed at the confidence that your program inspires.  The terminology could sound intimidating to non-Engineers (like myself) or even to high school students.  The projects and the teamwork were just perfect.  He had some very clear ideas of what he likes and what he hopes to do.  The tour of Lockheed Martin was icing on the cake. We are beyond thankful that he had this opportunity and are very impressed with Cal Poly SLO!
