The Program for the Mastery of Engineering Studies (PROMES) at the University of Houston invites students entering the 8th-11th grade to an all-expense-paid two-week program all about engineering July 14-26.
Each week will be packed full of fun courses, games, competitions, plant visits and talks with engineers and current UH engineering students.
To participate, students must be entering the 8th, 9th, 10th or 11th grade and have an interest in science or engineering. This program is free of charge for the students and lunches are included. This is made possible through the generosity of the Chemical Industry for Minorities in Engineering, American Society of Civil Engineers and other corporations.
