SEI is a 3-week residential engineering institute for rising 11th and 12th graders from across the nation (all under-represented minorities in engineering) who are working in teams to plan, design, and research the economical and social impacts of a selected engineering problem.
SEI Academic Facilitators (AF) develop a small project and teach the concepts associated with the project to the students participating in SEI. They also work with SEI administrators to create the judging rubric.
