BlueStamp Engineering (BSE) is a 6-week, hands-on summer engineering program where high school students build projects they are passionate about from concept to prototype. In past summers, BSE students have created hovercrafts, medical devices, robotic hands, solar-powered electronics, wind turbines, and much more. Students keep the projects they make.
BSE inspires students to learn what it's like to be an engineer through real experience. Similar to a real engineer, each student documents his/her creative journey via a personal online portfolio with videos, technical descriptions, milestones, and blog posts. This portfolio and the projects the student keeps are great ways to showcase uniqueness to colleges and employers.
Class schedule: 6-week summer program; choose either morning or afternoon session.
Class size: 10-14 students/session, with 1:3 instructor-to-student ratio.
