Local HS students explore engineering at UVM/GIV institute

Eight exciting hands-on engineering projects will challenge 113 high school students, including Stephen Donahue (electrical), Carly Neeld (robots), and Sarah Winget (robots) during the UVM/GIV Engineering Institute June 22-29. The UVM College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS) provides students with eight days/seven nights of jam-packed activities and presentations on sustainable engineering practices. These students meet engineers, computer scientists, and mathematicians who open their eyes to current societal problems and who present novel engineering solutions.

Students also create YouTube video presentations and display their prototype devices to judges at the University Mall on Saturday, June 29 in South Burlington, from 10 am to 3 pm.  Awards will be given to students for projects as well as written Technocratic Oaths that reflect their life purpose, and for poetry that reflects their experience in the UVM/GIV Engineering Institute.
