Girls’ Adventures in Mathematics, Engineering, and Science (GAMES) is an annual week-long camp, designed to give academically talented high school girls (rising 9th-12th graders) an opportunity to explore exciting engineering and scientific fields through demonstrations, classroom presentations, hands-on activities, and contacts with women in these technical fields.
GAMES presents an advanced curriculum, uses world-class instructional facilities, and provides an “away from home” experience at one of the best engineering schools in the world.
Enrollment in the program is limited to ensure the quality of the academic experience. GAMES has a selective admissions process based on academic performance, a written essay, and a teacher recommendation.

The Environmental Engineering and Sustainability camp is all about understanding the interactions of humans and other living organisms with the atmospheric, terrestrial and aquatic environments. Such understanding helps Environmental Engineers design sustainable technological solutions to meet critical needs of the humans on Earth, such as, the need for clean air, the need for clean water, and the need for clean and renewable energy sources. Sustainable technological solutions developed by Environmental Engineers are contributing to protection of human health and the environment, so that future generations can enjoy a high quality of life.
Campers explore many of the exciting traditional and new topics within Environmental Engineering, such as:
These topics are covered through lectures, hands-on activities and team projects. Campers also go on field trips to further understand concepts within Environmental Engineering and Sustainability and to witness how these topics apply to the real world.
This year’s camp will include most of these topics and projects, but is subject to change.
