Summer Institute

Welcome to the TryEngineering Summer Institute!

This exciting two-week experience is designed to inspire future engineers through an engaging (and fun!) on-campus experience. Students explore different fields of engineering while learning how they can use engineering principles and lessons to solve real-world challenges. Students ages 12-17 participate in a broad range of fun and educational design challenges across the engineering spectrum.

In the past, students have designed robot arms, drones and remote-controlled cars, built and launched rockets, and even learned to solder working circuits. Students also experience real-life work firsthand during behind-the-scenes tours with real-life engineers at locations like NASA, LaGuardia International Airport, a ConEdison power station, local engineering companies, aerospace contractors and more.
