The objective of the Engineering Scholars Program is to increase the number of students entering engineering programs in Arkansas through exposure to hands-on engineering projects, plant trips, and interaction with industry engineers. In addition, the one-week residential summer program includes counseling and advising sessions to assist students in preparing for college. The exposure to engineering and counseling and advising sessions will help high school students make informed choices on appropriate course work during their high school years for pursuing future careers in engineering. The program features academic and lab sessions on various engineering disciplines, including robotics. The program also features counseling and advising sessions to assist students in preparing for college. See highlights of the 2014 Engineering Scholars Program Robot Olympics here.
