UA SITE camp hosts 150 high school students

By Associated Engineering Press

The SITE camp is not like a typical summer camp for high school students. They do not sleep in tents and conduct daily outdoor excursions; instead the students are engaged within an academic environment where they are exposed to daily routines consisting of mathematics, engineering, science and technology.

Greg Singleton, director of Engineering Services as well as the Multicultural Engineering Program, directs the camp. He has been involved with the camp since its beginning more than 25 years ago. The camp is run by six counselors who are engineering majors, each coming from a particular engineering department. Sources: The Crimson WhiteThe Tuscaloosa NewsWBRC Fox 6
