The next generation of problem solvers were at work in Endicott this week.
For the second year, BAE hosted its STEM camp.
Thirty area students ages 12 to 15 were led by BAE engineers through several engineering based projects and activities.
Students presented their final projects which ranged from a smart doorbell, which emails a photo on the ringer, to a system that waters a plant based on the number of website votes it receives.
BAE Engineering Leadership Development Manager Christopher Brew says the goal of the camp is to get the kids interested in engineering.
“It’s exciting for us because you can see the excitement they have about our products products, about our business about the industry itself. So getting young people involved in engineering as an engineer is really exciting to see. The more people are involved in this career and the more people involved in engineering as a whole builds a pipeline for us here for future engineers down the road,” said Brew.
This year’s camp theme focused on “Internet of Things.”
Brew says they will look for ways to continue to grow the program going forward.
He says students interested in the program can talk to their school’s guidance counselor.
