Summer Engineering Academy

Webb Institute continues to monitor the situation surrounding the outbreak of the coronavirus. We are hopeful that we will be able to proceed with this year’s Summer Engineering Academy; however, we will continue to evaluate the situation and make a final decision by May 15th, 2020. If we decide to cancel this summer’s program, registrants will be fully refunded for payments made.

The Webb Institute Summer Engineering Academy (SEA) is designed to introduce middle and high school students to the field of engineering through classroom learning, challenging team-oriented hands-on activities, and a local field trip to an engineering-related site.
