Sameer and Tyler are seniors at Monta Vista High School who have had a long-standing passion for engineering and technology. When they were elementary schoolers, they took lots of STEM classes, and had a blast learning how fun engineering could be. They realized that when done right, summer camps had the potential to be inspirational. After falling in love with many of the camps around the bay area, they wanted to help make the same great learning experience they had to kids all around the bay area. When they entered high school, they were eager to find a way to provide this great summer camp experience at a low price. During the summer heading into 9th grade, Sameer and Tyler decided to found Future Engineers Camp with the goal of spreading high-quality engineering classes to as many people as possible. After spending months refining the curriculum and determining the best ways to make the camps both fun and educational, they ran their first camp in the summer of 2014.
Isha Chakraborty is a rising senior at Monta Vista High School, a programmer, entrepreneur, writer, as well as a lifelong student looking to change the world through technology. Her experiences with technology have taken her near and far, from her research work on detecting forest fires with a drone using Deep Convolutional Neural Networks to working as a research intern at Microsoft to create a smart drone that can identify faces.
Aside from her research work, Isha works in the electrical division of her school's robotics team. She also mentors a group of female students on persevering in the field of STEM. Isha carries this idea forth as she leads a chapter of Technovation, motivating girls to develop their own mobile apps and business plans. She hopes to make technology education as accessible as possible as she believes in the power of technology and hopes to bring a love of STEM to the next future engineers!
In 2013, our team of high schoolers set out with a single mission: to provide students with high-energy, personalized, and hands-on technology education in a summer camp setting. For the last four years, Future Engineers Camp has been making STEM exciting with concepts that are applicable to the real world. Since our formation, we’ve spread our love for robotics and computer science to hundreds of students and families across Silicon Valley. Now, we are on the way to inspiring countless students and giving them an early edge in technology!
Through our personal passion for Engineering, we’ve found it invaluable to understand and apply concepts in both mechanical and software engineering. We believe that an early start to STEM learning can lead to a bright future in engineering. Now we want to share our interest with other kids and help them become passionate engineers themselves, all while having tons of fun. We believe everyone should have an opportunity to explore STEM fields, and our camp is a great place to do so. Our teachers follow a student-centered approach to learning and we sustain a 1:3 teacher to student ratio!
Here at Future Engineers Camp, we believe that all students should have access to a STEM education. We are always looking passionate individuals dedicated to furthering our mission! Contact us if you would like to work or partner with us!
