High School Students

  • Explore Engineering
    Fall and spring, high school students join us for a Saturday on the University of Dayton campus to explore engineering the hands-on way!
  • Extra Exploring
    Would you like to attend Extra Exploring prior to our fall or spring Explore Engineering program? Meet faculty, staff and students and learn how the School of Engineering fosters a diverse community.
  • Project Lead the Way
    You can receive two credits at the University of Dayton by completing four high school Project Lead the Way courses.
  • Summer Engineering Experiences at the University of Dayton (SEE-UD) (during the summer semester)
    High school students join us for a summer engineering experience(s) where you'll interact with engineering faculty, staff and students, to discover how engineers solve some of the world's problems. You choose from a variety of programs.
  • University of Dayton Preview Days and Engineering Information
    Will you be attending one of UD's Preview Days this fall? Then, plan to attend our special presentation beforehand and discover why engineering at UD is unique. 

Middle School and Third Grade Students

  • Pick-Up-and-Go Engineering Activities for Middle School Students For middle school students, grab a “pick-up-and-go” engineering activity module that can be used for a one-time learning experience or for an on‐going after school engineering club or event.
  • STEM Stories for Third Grade Students For third grade students, these lessons introduce STEM disciplines through real-life scenarios in a fun way!
  • Girls Creating with STEAM Camp
    Girls Creating with STEAM is a fun, hands-on day camp! This camp is open to any student entering 6th grade in the fall and will introduce students to different types of engineering. Students will work in teams to innovate, create and problem solve.

International Students


  • STEM Teachers: Inspire The Next Generation If you are a high school science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) teacher, join us this summer and collaborate with faculty, researchers, and students and participate in our NSF-sponsored program. Enjoy hands-on STEM learning and real-world engineering research focused on human centered design and appropriate technology.
