| || The
University of Idaho College of Engineering sponsors the annual Idaho
Junior Engineering, Mathematics, and Science (JEMS) Summer Workshop for students
who have completed their junior or senior year of high
school. The focus of the workshop is to expose
students to engineering problems within technical and social contexts, and
to encourage them to enroll in college. JEMS includes
lectures and hands-on activities in Leadership, Engineering Design, Modeling, and
possibly AutoCAD. Students will participate in lab exercises, field trips,
computer exercises, and recreational activities. |
Up to 60 participants are

of the Idaho JEMS Application.
Participants experience the UI Campus—talking
with professors and counselors, learning about college life, and participating
in career planning activities that will help them become aware
of high school course work needed to prepare for an
engineering or computer science career. Idaho JEMS students live
on-campus and are supervised by faculty and dorm counselors.
Upon successful completion of the workshop, students earn two college
