Inside USD -- The University of San Diego’s Engineering Programs hosted 160 high school-age cadets from the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) for a national camp designed to enhance the students’ science and technology skills.
Loma Hall, the home for USD’s Engineering Programs, was bustling with activity through the camp, which ran from July 17-22. The young cadets took part in hands-on experiments using math, science and engineering technology concepts. On the third floor of the building, students were busy making “shoes” for a Walk on Water competition, similar to the community event hosted by USD each spring. The second floor was dedicated to those working on programming robots. The Loma Hall basement was turned into a catapult design center. (Full Story)
