Overview

Designed to offer middle school girls an early introduction to the world to technology, engineering, and computing, TEC Camp inspires middle school age girls to consider college majors and careers in these important fields. The format is highly interactive and designed to address the specific interests of middle school students. Listed below are just a few highlights of what your camper will experience during their week at TEC Camp:

  • Explore the exciting world of engineering through hands-on projects in such areas as chemical engineering, aerospace engineering, and web design.
  • Work on a project in teams with other middle school students, and present group findings at the conclusion of the week.
  • Meet and interact directly with Georgia Tech professors, students, and professional women.
