About SAME Camps

For over 30 years, before STEM was being promoted, SAME has been advancing events and activities and offering scholarships designed to excite students to become engineers. SAME, in collaboration with the military services, offers a series of week long, STEM Engineering & Construction Camps designed for High School students who excel in math, science and technology courses and are interested in pursuing engineering, architecture, or related fields in college.  Each of our camps has their unique curriculum, with the common thread being: challenging environment, hands-on activities, mentors who are young engineers, long term resources for alumni.

Details can be found on the SAME website at the following link:

Volunteers Wanted (needed)

The success of our programs and events are made possible by the dedication of our volunteers. Any amount of time you have to offer will help.
