Chemical & Materials Engineering Camp
Materials Scientists and Chemical Engineers use their knowledge to solve many of today's pressing challenges, including development of novel pharmaceutical formulations, coatings for self-cleaning, and energy-efficient processing and manufacturing. Participants in this camp (June 17, 2022) will conduct a hands-on project associated with the materials and the processes in manufacturing pharmaceutical products.
Summer Blasting Camp
The University of Kentucky Explosive Research Team (UKERT) will be holding a blasting camp this summer, from July 13 - 15 at the UKERT research facility in the Robinson Forest. Facilities include on-site housing with cabins and a classroom for instruction. Campers will experience demonstrations, presentations, projects, and learn to handle and shoot explosives.
Engineers Day, or E-Day, is a celebration of everything engineering has to offer. From building bridges to discovering new medications to writing the software that powers our cell phones, engineers and computer scientists do the things that make our 21st-century world work. Activities for all ages!
Women in Engineering Day
Students grades 10-12 will interact with alumni, faculty, staff and students as they explore UK Engineering. Learn about the process of applying to UK, discover what it takes to be a successful engineering student, meet UK Engineering staff and faculty, and engage with current leaders in the UK Society of Women Engineers. Parents and guardians will also learn how they can help their student pursue a career in engineering during a unique parent/guardian workshop. A complimentary lunch is included. An optional tour of campus will be available at the conclusion of WiE Day activities.

UK STEM Experiences
The UK STEM Experiences is a collaboration among the UK Colleges of Education, Engineering, and Arts & Sciences. Our goal is to expose students to a variety positive learning experiences and career options in the STEM fields. The week-long day camps are designed to help students explore and integrate the STEM disciplines through authentic hands-on projects and real world applications. Camps are available for elementary, middle, and high school students.
Kentucky Science Olympiad
UK is the home of Kentucky Science Olympiad! Each year, we host more than 800 middle and high school students on campus for a day of academic STEM competition for students who participate in Science Olympiad at their schools.
Big Blue Regatta
UK Engineering’s annual high school STEM Challenge/boat race competition, where teams of students create cardboard boats and race them across the pool in the UK Lancaster Aquatic Center.
Rubik’s Cube Tournament
Do you cube? This Rubik's cube competition is for people of all ages and levels. There will be multiple events for different puzzles, so not just the original 3x3 Rubik's cube. The event is also not necessarily a competitive event, but a time to meet fellow cubers and interact and learn from cubers of all levels!
