CU Engineering and Applied Mathematics Summer Academy

2018 CU Engineering and

Applied Mathematics Summer Academy

 June 10 –15, 2018

The CU Engineering and Applied Mathematics Summer Academy is a High School summer academy for Oklahoma Residents. It is free to all participants.

The main focus of this year's academy is to allow students to study and experiment with clean water systems by learning about renewable water engineering through hands on sampling and system design. Students will work in the laboratory to enumerate pathogens in water samples, and they will then use this information to assist them in designing a portable clean water system.  Following the engineering design process, students will research, design, test, and redesign their water systems. Next, using their newly designed portable systems, students will strive to maximize their clean water output through the redesign process. The final project will include a design competition of the portable clean water systems based on set criteria, and a PowerPoint presentation where students reflect on their design process and the growth they experienced during the academy.
