WiE RISE is a six-day, residential summer program for high school women who are going into grade 11 or 12 in the fall following the camp.
Dates: Sunday, July 13, 2014, 3:00 pm - Friday, July 18, 2014, 5:00 pm
Sponsored by the GM Foundation and hosted by the Women in Engineering (WiE) Program in The Ohio State University’s College of Engineering, WiE RISE is a six-day, residential summer camp designed to introduce female students to Ohio State's undergraduate engineering majors and related career fields. Young women who are rising high school juniors and seniors are eligible to apply.
Participants are housed in a dorm on The Ohio State University Columbus campus, where they are supervised by four residential advisors. All meals, materials and transportation are provided for students throughout the camp.
WiE RISE will consist of at least two academic sessions or off-campus field trips each day. These sessions will provide students with an in-depth introduction to undergraduate engineering majors offered by Ohio State and also to related career fields. Sessions will be led by Ohio State engineering faculty and graduate students and will consist of an introductory presentation followed by a fun, hands-on activity. Each evening, participants will engage in social and recreational activities designed to introduce them to the undergraduate experience at Ohio State University. Participants will spend time getting to know current Ohio State University female engineering students and hearing about their undergraduates' engineering experiences, job opportunities, and future career paths. Participants will also have the opportunity to visit area corporations and businesses to see firsthand the work that engineers do and the important role that they play in our local, regional, national, and global communities.
All daytime and evening activities are supervised by members of the program's staff and residential assistants.
