Here is what parents and campers have to say about EPIC.
"Such an awesome camp. Exactly what I was looking for 3 years ago for my son to get an introduction to different engineering fields. He came away with an interest in computer science. Fast forward to summer 2017 and he's preparing to leave Seattle to begin his CS degree at Cal Poly this fall. Go Mustangs!!"
"My daughter loved this experience both for the exposure to various engineering disciplines and the sheer fun of it! The leaders and other campers were amazing. I'd recommend this camp in a heartbeat!!"
"This camp is just AMAZING!! It has been probably the most fun I've had all summer. The crew is super cool and supportive. All the counselors were SUPER FUN and really encouraging. The staff was always there to help, with a smile on their faces. The kids were all nice and I never felt discouraged or left out. The competitions were fun, competitive but not over the top. Team spirit was extremely high, by the last day I could hardly talk because we were yelling soo loud!...If you are skeptical or unsure if you will like CalPoly EPIC, set all your fears behind and sign up! It will be a week you will never forget!"
"My daughter had an amazing time at EPIC last week! Thank you for all the creativity and hard work you all put into this program."
"I cannot thank you enough for your assistance this April in helping some of my Morgan Hill students obtain scholarships to Cal Poly EPIC. You literally, I believe, changed some of their lives. I have had a chance to talk to 3 out of the 6 kids and here are some quotes from them:
- I took computer engineering and we got to program a chip. I thought it was really interesting.
- I took architectural engineering and I think I want to be an architect!
- I’ve always thought of going to Southern California but being accepted into Cal Poly would be a dream come true!"
"My son...had a great time. I will highly recommend to friends and family. My son attended the last session this summer – Jul 31 – Aug 4. He had an outstanding experience and loved this camp – the hands-on philosophy, the professional teaching staff, and the enthusiastic and helpful counselor staff were all big positives. He learned a lot, became clearer on his interests in engineering, and had a lot of fun. The inclusive feel of the entire experience made a big difference for him.. He is introverted and can be overlooked in large groups, but he felt completely welcomed and party of the team. He felt heard, which can be hard for an extremely reserved personality. He has attended a couple of other college-based programs and EPIC was, by far, his best experience. Thank you!
