2021 Honolulu CC Summer Engineering Academy

SEA is an intensive six-week summer program that offers high school students the opportunity to learn, think and solve problems like an engineer. Students will apply their knowledge of math and science to practical projects, which will allow them to see concepts they have learned in the classroom come alive. Through lab work, group projects, lectures and assignments, students will explore the engineering fields related to transportation, science, computer, electrical and mechanical engineering. Students will meet other students with similar interests, collaborate on testing theories and find solutions to engineering problems. As students complete SEA projects on materials, structures, chemical processes, circuit design, computer programming, robotics and other topics, they will gain insights into which engineering fields best match their abilities and interests. Students will rotate through different modules lasting for approximately two weeks each.

Parents will receive valuable information about financial aid through a FAFSA workshop, and receive guidance regarding college applications from our counsellors.

This year the program will run from June 7, 2021 to July 16, 2021.

Interested individuals must complete their application by Friday, June 4, 2021.

It looks like another exciting summer here at HonCC!
