Girls Geared for Engineering Camp is for middle school aged girls which takes place June 8-12, 2020 at the Kent Main Campus. In 2017, campers experienced aerospace engineering and mechatronics-the integration of mechanical, electrical, computer, and systems engineering-on the Kent State University campus in this multi-disciplinary, weeklong day camp. They took part in fun and challenging engineering projects and activities, such as flying mini-drones and launching a rocket. Campers explored career opportunities during site visits to two well-known companies.
