Summer 2022

The University of Texas Permian Basin, College of Engineering (UTPB COE) has been selected as a 2022-2023 Unite summer program site.  The program is funded by the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) from which UTPB COE received a grant, and administered by the  TSA LOGO Technology Student Association (TSA).  Unite is a four-to-six-week, pre-collegiate, academic summer program for talented high school students from groups historically underserved in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). Students will experience hands-on activities demonstrating connections between math, science, and engineering. Theoretical math and science concepts will be tested through hands-on experiential learning projects such as design, assembly, and testing of solar power, robotics, wind power, gears and pulley, Newton’s Laws, Sterling engine, coding with Python, the reaction of chemicals, and engineering graphics.

XTO Energy 2022 Engineering Summer Camp

xto-logo-1.jpgThe UTPB/XTO Energy Summer Camp is an experiential learning outreach activity with the goal of igniting interest among middle and high school students to pursue careers in engineering. Campers will get an introduction to fundamental concepts in chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and petroleum engineering. Engineering professors and engineering students conduct lectures, projects, and serve as teaching assistants, mentors, and group leaders.

The Camp is an interactive learning experience that connects science, math, and engineering-related applications together. The Camp duration is two-weeks – the first week is for middle school and the second week is for high school. Each day starts at 8:30 AM and ends at 3:30 PM with built-in break periods and lunch breaks.
