This intensive hands-on mechanical engineering experience exposed participants to a $1.2m facility with support from undergraduate and graduate assistants under the direction of Dr. Valentine Soloiu. Understanding the process of engineering, working directly with equipment found in Ford, GM and Gulf Stream participants created intelligent vehicles that could respond to light, color and sound.

The barrier islands of Georgia, Skidaway, Tybee, Little Tybee and Wassau were explored using state of the art equipment. Shore line GPS data was gathered, drifter trackers deployed and data monitored over time. The young ladies engaged in the pilot project hosted a Poster Session for parents and University faculty to share their experience & their findings using the 5E teaching model.

Girls spent time learning the details about reptiles and amphibians in their natural habitat, created frog huts and began to discern the differences between a variety of frogs and compared frogs to lizards across this week. Jumping into ponds to retrieve environmental clues first hand in waders helped to make these young campers junior experts and excited about science. Catch a glimpse of our 2016 camp below.
