FYI campers will work with Purdue women engineering students on hands-on activities such as designing materials for disaster relief efforts (examples include packaging food to survive extreme weather and exploring different technologies to clean oil spills). Campers will also tour Purdue Engineering laboratories and meet faculty and graduate students conducting cutting-edge research. Campers benefit from meeting other girls who enjoy using their imagination and creativity to solve interesting problems.
