The summer program brings together 3D printing, coding workshops, rocket launching, art classes, weekend tours and canoeing. It offers participants an opportunity to meet and work with Lassonde engineering students. Summer camp participants will have an opportunity to discover and explore their passions, try different technologies and make new friends.

Summer camp participants will spend four quality weeks learning how to use technology for social impact to solve some of tomorrow’s most complex problems today.

Camp Lassonde culminates with a sustainability grand challenge project, which is a team effort to tackle a current global issue while at the same time showcasing what they have learned over the four weeks.
