At GiE, we cultivate a fun, non-threatening environment that is designed to show how exciting engineering can be.
During camp, campers explore engineering, meet new friends and mentors, and develop their teamwork skills. GiE participants come from all over the Bay Area, with diverse interests and various experiences with engineering. While some campers may already love engineering or science, for many this is their first time exploring engineering.
