Rice University ELITE Tech Summer Camp

We want to share with you a new virtual pre-college engineering summer program in the School of Engineering at Rice University. The Rice Center for Engineering Leadership is proud to announce the launch of Rice ELITE Tech, a virtual summer camp experience from Rice University. Rice ELITE Tech offers high school students an inside look at how to use and/or develop cutting-edge technologies and techniques (e.g., artificial intelligence, internet of things, Python coding, R coding, 3D modeling and 3D printing, data analytics, machine learning, etc.). Rice ELITE Tech has four key components that make it a unique STEM camp:

  • Tech courses on cutting-edge technologies (e.g., machine learning, human spaceflight, internet of things, 3D printing and modeling, etc.)

  • Engineering problem solving using coding (e.g., Python, R, C++)

  • Engineering leadership training

  • Information about engineering majors and how a student can choose the right one


This summer, we are excited to welcome campers to our beautiful Rice University campus in Houston, Texas with both residential and day (commuter) camp offerings, as well as continuing our virtual camp option. Rice ELITE Tech Camps are open to all rising high school students (current 8th-11th graders as of spring 2022).

We hope that you will share this information with your students at << Test High School >>! We hope that by putting top faculty, researchers, staff, and students in front of students, Rice ELITE Tech can offer your students an exciting escape into advanced technologies and learning, while acquiring real skills to differentiate their future college applications.
