Summer Programs for Current Students
GK-12 is a program that pairs educational teams of Drexel Engineering graduate fellows and teachers from high schools in the School District of Philadelphia to collaborate in identifying and designing engineering and technology based classroom materials. During the program, the teams develop curricula that will be implemented throughout the upcoming academic year in high school classrooms. The GK-12 fellows spend 10 hours per week throughout the school year helping the teachers implement the lessons they developed over the summer. For more information, please visit the GK-12 website.
Materials Science and Engineering Summer Institute
The Drexel University Materials Science & Engineering Summer Institute will give aspiring scientists and engineers the chance to learn about how atomic elements arrange themselves to form the materials that are all around us. Furthermore, the Summer Institute will emphasis how variables in processing of materials determine physical, mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. Through hands-on science and engineering activities, students will gain an understanding of how materials impact the fields of energy, biotechnology and electronics. Sustainability and nanotechnology will be a theme woven through all of the modules. For more information, please visit the Summer Institute website.
ASM International: Materials Camp
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University, in conjunction with the ASM International Philadelphia "Liberty Bell" Chapter, host Materials Camp, a week-long, hands-on academic day camp to introduce high school students to the exciting and important field of materials science and engineering. Materials Camp provides the perfect opportunity for high school students to explore the field of materials science and engineering. For more information, please visit the Materials Camp website.
Summer Music Technology Program (SMT)
Summer Music Technology (SMT) Program is an innovative, one-week learning experience that provides twenty high school sophomores and juniors with a unique opportunity to learn about music production technology and digital audio from Drexel faculty and students. This program approaches music and audio technology from the perspective of engineering, mathematics and science. For more information, please visit the SMT page.
