Sponsor Electrify Tech Camp

Electrify

Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Michigan created Electrify Tech Camp in an effort to spark high school students’ interest in STEM, specifically electrical and computer engineering. The purpose is for high school students to learn about ECE, the University of Michigan, and enjoy an advanced program that challenges them to think creatively and stretch the boundaries. Electrify Tech Camp was designed with the following goals in mind:

  • Generate exposure and understanding to what electrical and computer engineering is.

  • Introduce students to advanced program content through exciting, hands-on projects that wouldn’t otherwise be offered at a high school level.

  • Illustrate ECE’s global impact as it directly relates to participants’ everyday lives.

  • Provide a glimpse into the life of Michigan Engineering students while encouraging a collaborative, inclusive, and Michigan Wolverine-centric environment.

Due to the technical nature of these camps, costs are high. Not only are tenured faculty and current graduate students teaching the campers, but the campers will work in actual U-M ECE labs. Just like our undergraduate classes at Michigan, the lab equipment limits the number of students we can admit. In addition, we will be purchasing special kits so each camper will have the experience of building an actual device. And finally – we want to offer as many scholarships as possible so that no student will be turned away due to finances.

The MEZ, Detroit

Michigan ECE is hosting its first Detroit-based Electrify Tech Camp program at the Michigan Engineering Zone (MEZ) in summer 2019. This program helps students that live and attend school in the greater Detroit area.

Electrify at the MEZ will provide a unique educational experience to students that wouldn’t otherwise receive an in depth STEM education. Michigan ECE and the U-M College of Engineering are committed to promoting the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We look forward to sharing our passion for innovation and excellence with the students of Detroit.
