Engineering VOLunteers for Tenth Graders (E-VOL10)

The college is hosting the 5th annual E-VOL10 for rising tenth grade students who demonstrate interests in engineering. E-VOL10 provides an introduction to chemistry and awareness of engineering careers. The program will be hosted June 4–10, 2017.

Thirty-two students are selected to participate. Students live within a residence hall on the UT campus and engage in chemistry, ACT preparation, compete in engineering challenges, and tour an engineering industrial plant. Throughout the program, students team with each other to apply what was learned and work on an engineering design project.

All applicants must have taken the PSAT, ACT Explore, ACT Aspire, or 9th Grade Standardize Test. E-VOL10 provides a one-week experience, at no major cost, and includes following:

  • Orientation session
