Outreach Weekends

Thanks to outreach efforts sponsored by various departments on RPI campus, CIPCE mentors participate in a variety of spring outreach weekends designed to inspire visiting elementary, middle School and high school students to consider STEM fields.


Engineering Academies

Our Summer Engineering Academies, both on and off campus, include programs such as Animation & Gaming with Scratch, Arduino, JrLEGO® Robotics, LEGO® NXT, Advanced LEGO® NXT and VEX Robotics. Participants design, plan, construct and reconstruct in a project-based, student-centered learning environment that fosters inquiry, innovation and critical thinking.
