    Hanover College
    517 Ball Dr

    Students will have the opportunity to explore the engineering programs available through the college. Students with interests in engineering, math, and science attend this week long, residential camp where they will be engaged in various hands-on activities. Students will participate in a combined class for tours and general engineering, then separate out into either the mechanical track or the electrical track.
    Interested in energy and sustainability? This academy will give you an introduction to renewable energy and have you apply that knowledge by building a solar water heater suitable for use in a third world country. You will also visit some local manufacturing companies and a coal power plant to gain some insights on what engineers do. Finally, you will be given an opportunity to carry out a couple of lab assignments that Hanover College engineering students do in their classes. This will give you a better understanding of what it is like to take engineering courses.
    Interested in building electronics? This academy will teach you how to solder (the method used to attach parts to a circuit board), the basics of electronic theory, explore websites that sell electronic kits, introduce you to small computer systems (like Arduino and Raspberry Pi) and get you in the lab to play.
