Summer Camps for Pre-College Students

Every summer WISE brings over 150 middle and high school students to campus to participate in our summer programs. Students primarily commute from within a 60 mile radious of Ann Arbor. Some come from outside of the area and stay with friends ro relatives in the area. Others stay in a hotel with parents for the week.

All of our programs include science- and engineering-focused hands-on learning, combined with exploring interesting places on campus.
