Hosted at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS

Summer 2024 Residential Camps


June 2-7, 2024 

Math and Aerospace Engineering


June 9-14, 2024 

Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence

We have planned a fun-filled approach to Engineering where students learn by doing! Our summer camps will have hands on projects in each session.  All sessions are week long on campus residential camps at KU. Students will be housed in a dorm with a full meal plan. Each camp has two focus areas: Math & Aerospace Engineering or Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence.

This camp is hosted at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS. Totally free of cost except for transportation! Available only to rising juniors and seniors (aka current sophomores and juniors).


Learn basics of linear algebra and probability, two necessary mathematical tools for deep learning and artificial intelligence.

Computer Science (CS)

Learn the fundamentals of optimization algorithms and computer code, which are critical for computations in deep learning and artificial intelligence.

Aerospace Engineering (AE)

Learn about the basics of aircraft dynamics, control, and autonomy. Deepen your understanding through hands-on projects on unmanned aerial systems and performing actual flight tests.

Artiļ¬cial Intelligence (AI)

Build an autonomous car which can drive itself using a neural network model and a front-facing camera. Learn essential basics of AI systems by training a neural network model for the autonomous car on Google Colab cloud environment and testing the trained model on the actual RC car.
