2013 EPICS High Summer Training
Purdue University’s EPICS (Engineering Projects in Community Service) is engaging high school students in project based, service learning while exposing them to science, technology and engineering fields of study. EPICS High currently has schools in 10 U.S. States and several international sites. The targeted audience for EPICS High is grades 7-12. EPICS students work in teams and partner with not-for-profit organizations. Student teams design and build projects for these partner organizations to help them better serve the public. Student gain valuable real-world, professional skills and reinforce classroom learning. Schools are building partnerships and filling needs within their local communities while providing their students innovative learning expiriences.
The easiest way for teachers and administrators to learn more about EPICS, and get the tools and resources needed to start and maintain an EPICS program is through our summer training held here on the Purdue University campus in the Richard and Patricia Lawson Computer Science Building. The 2013 EPICS High Training took place July 8-11, 2013. Click on Workshop Schedule, to view a sample schedule.
