Our typical student is a rising junior (~35%) or senior (~65%) in high school. Talented 9th graders (rising sophomores) may be considered, however, priority will be given to older students. Graduated seniors are also eligible to participate during the summer before they begin their college career.
Because Explore Engineering Innovation and Biomedical Engineering Innovation are college-level courses, interested students must meet the following requirements:
We move through the topics quickly and assume students are able to extend upon the pre-requisite knowledge to tackle more challenging problems. Students who are currently enrolled in required courses are eligible to apply as long as the required classes will be completed prior to the first day of the Engineering Innovation course.
To be eligible to participate in any Engineering Innovation course you must either be:
Students who apply and are accepted to a residential location of Explore Engineering Innovation (In-Person) for summer 2022 must have been born between July 30, 2004, and July 3, 2007. This is because students who live in the dorms must be at least 15 years of age on the first day and not yet 18 years of age on the last day of the program.
Please note that the age restrictions do not apply to commuter and online programs.
