    Outreach and public engagement coordinator Lara Hebert, left, postdoctoral research associate Gabriel Burks, and bioengineering professor Jennifer Amos  (shown on laptop screen, right), developed a virtual summer camp that gave about 500 high school students across the U.S. the opportunity to sample 12 engineering disciplines. The camps were offered virtually during summer 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns.
