Virtual Camps

The University of Arkansas College of Engineering is offering high school students the opportunity to participate in our Engineering Summer Academy from home. Most materials will be provided and shipped via FedEx home delivery. Participants will use online instructions and software to guide them through camp activities with camp facilitators being available for questions one hour per day (3 - 4 PM Central Time) during the designated camp week. 

Activities can also be completed outside of these weeks using only the materials kits  and instructions.

Materials kits and virtual instruction will be $60. Families will be expected to provide basic supplies such as scissors, pencils, pens, and other required items as noted.

Scholarships are available to those who qualify for free or reduced lunch or have other extenuating financial circumstances that would make participation a hardship. 


Texas Instruments: Destination Code


Programming in Action

Grades: 8-12

Maximum Capacity: 20

Students will use the engineering design process to explore programming and its application. Participants will have the opportunity to design, build, and test software development concepts through building applications in Python on the TI NSpire CX II Student Software. Topics include random number generation, creating and controlling a virtual rover, and more!

This program takes more time to complete than our other virtual programs. Therefore, we encourage students who can commit to working the entire week to register.  This program will run parallel with our Engineering Summer Academy T.I. Destination Code section, but will be held in a remote learning format with a Zoom session 3-4 PM each day. 

Families must provide access to a computer capable of running Windows 10, MAC OS X 10.14, or MAC OS X 10.15. If assistance is needed to access a computer, please contact Teresa Simpson at
