High school students explored the world of engineering this summer through a STEM summer camp led by PROMES (Program for Mastery in Engineering Studies).

The weeklong camp (July 7- July 12, 2019) provided students an inside look into college life. Students lived in a UH dorm for the week, interacted with Cullen College faculty, visited research labs and attended information sessions with engineering professionals to learn more about the engineering college curriculum and future career options.

One of the camp activities included a site tour of the BP Helios campus. The daylong event featured tour of BP drilling simulation, networking with professional engineers, team activities and an employee discussion panel.
