At Hawai‘i Community College’s six-week Summer Engineering Academy, middle and high school students learned to think and solve problems like engineers — while also having fun.
In the process, they tackled subjects like computer programming, electronics, and architecture, which sound complex and intimidating even to many adults. But the program is designed to demystify these subjects through hands-on projects like creating Rube Goldberg machines, light and sound meters, and self-driving model cars.
