Each summer, the College of Engineering and Northern Nevada MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement) offer a free introductory engineering camp, available to students who will go on to be the first person in their family to attend college. MESA First Generation camp consists of interactive science and engineering activities, tours, project building, information about attending college and a field trip.
