NUBOTS Engineering & Technology Camp

NUBOTS Engineering & Technology Camp 

Target Population:  Ogden School District GEAR-UP students

NUBOTS Engineering & Technology Camp is a free summer camp for MESA and GEAR UP students and a unique collaborative effort between Utah partners: Weber State University’s (WSU) College of Applied Science & Technology, Ogden Weber Applied Technology College (OWATC), and Ogden City School District.

NUBOTS Camp Goals:

  • Provide a community service activity to encourage GEAR-UP students to improve educational achievement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
  • Reduce cumulative effects of learning loss during summer, a primary cause of widening achievement gaps between students of lower and higher socioeconomic levels.
  • Encourage students to choose to take the appropriate mathematics and science courses in high school so that they are prepared for college.
  • Give students exposure to both a college atmosphere and university campus.
  • Inspire students to enter mathematics, science, technology, and engineering careers paths.
  • Provide an opportunity for students to develop team building skills and practice leadership.
  • Give students public speaking practice as they present their projects to their classmates, friends, and families. 

This intensive engineering technology camp is organized and facilitated by college and university faculty.  Students work on a variety of hands-on engineering & design products as they build confidence, understanding and enthusiasm for STEM education and careers.
