Engineers of Tomorrow
Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering
The WYSE is a series of tests given to high school students in Illinois and Missouri. These tests rank the brightest students according to their knowledge and skills in science and engineering.
This summer, the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology is collaborating with NIU STEM Outreach to offer several opportunities for high school and middle school students to explore the world of engineering. Perfect for students already enjoying science and for those maybe considering it as a career. Join us at a camp and give your brain a workout this summer!
