Rising Stars

Rising Stars Engineering Camp!

Student working on electronics projectThis year, North Central State College is hosting the Rising Stars Engineering Camp for two weeks in June. The camp has been run each year since 2000 and has introduced over eight-hundred  7th and 8th graders to the wonderful and exciting world of Engineering!

Students will spend most of their time in college labs learning about electronic & mechanical engineering, green engineering, aeronautical engineering and physics. Students will work on their own and together with other campers as a team. All learning takes place in a hands-on environment. Students will be given a toolbox full of the necessary tools to design and build their own robot. At the end of camp, students will get to race their robot against other campers robots. Students will also learn how to build and power a windmill in the "green engineering" course -- how to build and launch their own rocket in the "aeronautical engineering" course -- and they will learn about how physics impacts engineering and the everyday, things we do in the "physics" course!

The courses will be taught by North Central State College Engineering and Physics faculty and qualified high school instructors.

Students will learn about the importance of pushing themselves academically in middle school and high school and the importance of continuing their education following high school graduation. They will learn about programs that NC State has to offer, outside of the realm of engineering with interactive visits from our Business, Industry, and Technology Division, our Liberal Arts, Education, Professional and Public Services Division and our Health Sciences Division. 

Students will get to let loose and have fun outside of the classroom, while getting to know their teammates and working together to win challenging and exciting games such as The Horn Honk, The Name Game, Walk the Plank, Water Balloon Volleyball, Magic Boots, The Postman, and a new camp favorite Relay Mania!

Students that enjoy the camp generally have an interest in math and science and a strong sense of curiosity. Several of our Rising Stars campers have actually continued their interest after grades 7 and 8 and during their sophomore year of high school they often express an interest in or attend the College-NOW Engineering.

If you believe that this camp is something that your son/daughter, grandchild, niece or nephew, or neighbor would enjoy -- keep reading below for more information!!

The NCSC Engineering Department would sincerely like to thank the Regional Manufacturing Coalition and the North Central State College Foundation for their generous support and contributions.
