Summer Camp:  CBE Summer Institute

Chemical and Biological Engineering

Explore the fascinating world of Chemical and Biological Engineering in this hands-on career camp!

You'll get in touch with your inner mad scientist, and learn what it is like to be a chemical, biochemical or biological engineer!

Spend the week doing hands-on experiments in labs and elsewhere. Make friends with other people interested in this essential area of science and engineering while you learn about things like: 

  • chemical process design
  • converting biomass into products, such as biofuels or biopolymers
  • processing of microelectronic devices
  • creating and purifying biopharmaceuticals
  • developing high-tech nano-materials and nano-energetics
  • generating alternative energy by novel catalysts
  • and designing food processes for consumption . . . think: CHOCOLATE! 

ENROLLMENT PROCESS:

All prospective campers must complete the following items before their summer camp application will be evaluated.

  1. Submit the online registration.
  2. Submit a Student Interests Statement along with the online registration. In no more than 400 words, answer the following in a short essay:
    • More about you and your interests
    • Why you want to attend this camp and what you hope to learn
    • What attributes you bring to the camp
  3. Provide contact information (name, email and phone number) of a trusted teacher so that we can ask that they complete a brief recommendation survey for the student. 

It's important to note that acceptance into each camp is not guaranteed. Evaluation and notification will take place for each student after the registration form, personal essay, and teacher recommendation are completed and returned to SD Mines Summer Camps.
