Through the Jackling Introduction to Engineering camp at Missouri S&T, cadets will be introduced to a variety of engineering fields with demonstrations and activities related to each discipline. Attendees will learn about what engineers do, the tools they use and how the various engineering fields affect everyday life. Afternoon activities will include interactive workshops and problems such as software development, aerospace testing and problem-solving, exploration of state-of-the-art engineering materials breakthroughs and the process of product development and testing.

The camp offers three sessions on June 11-15, June 25-29 and July 9-13, 2023.

In past years, MMA Cadet Peter Didicher '23 earned a scholarship to attend in 2022, and Cadets Yu-Jen Tong '22 and Gorka-Aitor Yarte-Zertuche '23 earned scholarships to attend in 2021. 

Two cadets will be selected this spring for the scholarship. Cadets interested in applying for the scholarship should see Maj. Mike Pemberton, science department chair, in Barnard Hall room 106 for an application. They can also email him at michael.pemberton@missourimilitaryacademy.com.
