The IEEE TryEngineering summer camps were held at three U.S. colleges: the University of California, Riverside; Texas A&M University; and Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology, in New York City. A total of 85 students attended the two-week sessions, held in July. Students in Grades 8 to 12 had the opportunity to build smart cars, erect bridges made from spaghetti, design drones, and compete in rocket challenges. TryEngineering awarded scholarships to 15 students who otherwise would not be able to afford a summer camp. One of the five IEEE societies to provide scholarship funds was EPS.
