Summer Engineering Academy 

Summer Engineering Academy, or SEA, is an intensive summer program that offers the student the opportunity to learn, to think, and problem-solve like an engineer. Students will apply their knowledge of math and science to practical projects, and see concepts they learned in high school classrooms come alive. Through lab work, group projects, lectures and assignments, you'll learn how engineers approach real-world problems. The students will meet other students with similar interests and collaborate on testing theories and find solutions to engineering problems

We are currently planning to explore the engineering fields related to micro-robotics,microprocessor programing, and 3-D printing. All these engineering disciplines just so that we can create micro-robots that will be competing with others for a robotics competition. You will have to design, build and program a micro-bot that is 1 cubic centimeter, and a 1 cubic inch maze solving robot.

Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Product Engineering, Mechatronics, are the primary engineering fields that will be explored. Ever wonder how they made that thing move, or how they fit everything into that small a body? That is what engineering is all about. Engineers make things work and fit where they need to go. 

As students complete SEA projects on materials, structures, chemical processes, circuit design, computer programming, robotics, and other topics, they will gain insights into which engineering fields best match their abilities and interests. These modules will be two weeks in length and 4 hours long each day. Students will rotate through each module.

Students will also take a college success class to prepare them for entry into the University System. This class is designed to orient students to the college setting. Students will be able to identify campus resources, demonstrate knowledge of
c o l l e g e procedures, discuss definition of success and evaluate their important life roles. Students will attend this course during the 3rd week of the program. 

Prerequisites are completion of geometry, completion of physics, or chemistry or biology and basic computer skills

Aloha Mules!

Thank you for spreading the news! Your shout-outs are working!  Let's continue to Hui together to support our Mules on a path to career/college success!

I need your voice again...would you be able to help me spread the word for our Zippy's PAID Summer Internship?  I  only have one applicant as of today. I know students want to do something in the summer...please encourage them to apply. Deadline to submit the parent/student form to attend the Internship Institute Day on Saturday, May 14, 2016 at the Dole Cannery is next Monday, May 2nd.  Pick up forms today in room HH101.  

Summer Internship:  June 1-July 31; Open to Juniors and Seniors

Participants learn valuable professional skills, meet new friends and get to update their resume.  

Zippy's includes parents in their Institute and graduation celebrations.  It's great to see the family support and they are so very grateful to be a part of this experience.

These four students completed the most recent internship, all were offered a job and are accepted, and received a $250 check for education.

Congratulations to Imua Mangca, Jayden Breaux-Santiago, Richard Somera, Keola Spencer! You go Mules!
