What is Hi-GEAR?

High School Girls’ Engineering Abilities Realized

The University of Utah, College of Engineering is pleased to offer our Annual Hi–GEAR Program, a special three-day online camp for female high school students.

Hi-GEAR is designed to expose young women to a variety of engineering and computer science careers with hands-on experiential learning and collaborative team projects.

This year’s camp will be experienced online through live demonstrations, guest speakers, and tours of lab spaces. Come explore engineering with activities that encourage the use of problem-solving skills. The camp will introduce you to chemical, electrical, civil, computer, mechanical, materials, and biomedical engineering through hands on learning from the comfort of your home!

Join us, along with other high school students, researchers, and college students from the University of Utah College of Engineering. Campers will be able to ask questions, make comments, and post photos and/or videos.

If campers choose to participate in the hands on activities, there may be additional costs for supplies. We will provide a parts list for those activities, several of which you might already have at home.


Who can participate?

We are seeking enthusiastic female-identifying high school students who are currently in 9th, 10th, or 11th grades. (e.g. these students will be entering grades 10th, 11th, or 12th in Fall 2021). Applicants should enjoy math and science and be interested in exploring their academic potential (while having fun in the process).
