Wilderness or robots? New engineering enrichment summer program at McMaster University
Work on a tan or build a robot? Or, maybe, design a car or an aircraft instead. These are two of the main activities grade 11 and 12 students interested in science and engineering can undertake as part of a new summer engineering enrichment camp launched by the Faculty of Engineering at McMaster University.
