The 10th – 12th grade program runs July 18-22, full days. It includes field trips, design and construction projects, laboratory testing, and computer
projects using Microsoft Project, AutoCAD, and West Point Bridge Design software. Field trips will take students to residential and commercial construction
projects. Students may attend this program as day students or as they may reside in the residence halls.
The 7th – 9th grade program runs July 11-15, half days. It offers “hands-on” workshops that are designed to introduce students to civil engineering and
construction industry fields. The “hands-on” workshops include designing and building a catapult, a boat, a concrete bowling ball, using software to design
and test a bridge, and about construction material properties including tensile and compressive strength testing. Industry speakers will expose students to
construction industry career choices.
