2015 Camps are now finished for the year.
NCCET offers summer programs in Hickory!
Appalachian State University, Catawba Valley Community College and NC State University have partnered together to offer four summer camps in 2015. This summer in Hickory there will be one elementary school Future Engineers camp (rising 3rd through 5th grade students) as well as one middle school Future Engineers camp (rising 6th through 8th grade students)and one Robotics Camp (rising 7th – 8th grade students) during 2015. In addition a product development camp for rising 9th and 10th graders will be offered. This camp will allow students to learn Computer Aided Design (CAD) and program Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machines to create a product. (Students previously attending the product development camp are NOT eligible to apply this year.)
These Hickory camps are non-residential and students attend each day from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm. The programs provide students with a fun and positive introduction into various fields of engineering by using hands-on, creative investigations and real-world building activities.
Students are led in activities during the week by licensed elementary and middle school teachers along with Appalachian faculty, students and staff. The teachers serve as team leaders throughout the week and also lead some of the activities.
