Other highlights of the summer schedule include engineering camp (June 24-28), chemistry camp (July 8-11) and Project Catalyst for engineering educators, also referred to as the E3 workshop (July 10-13). The college admissions workshop, which is for children of Bucknell alumni, faculty and staff, will be held June 28-29, while the Project Lead the Way summer core training program is slated for July 23-Aug. 3.
