BOLT Camp

Are you interested helping others? Are you fascinated by medical technology? Come experience where engineering meets medicine at BOLT, Bioengineering Opportunities and Leadership Training, Camp. Gain a better understanding of what it means to be a bioengineer through hands-on activities with our faculty and students.

We are excited to announce the sixth year of BOLT summer camp!

BOLT is a camp for high school students that teaches about biomedical engineering and some of the exciting career options available for STEM-focused students. This in-person camp at the Department of Bioengineering at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus will be filled with interesting topics and activities designed to introduce high school students to biomedical engineering and leadership topics. The camp will be a four-day event offered entirely in person

Student teams will work together to design, build, test, and iterate to create a prototype and compete in an engaging, yet laid-back design competition. In parallel, students will learn about biomedical engineering, dive into the theory of general engineering principles, and get a sneak peak of cutting-edge research. There will be many hands-on activities throughout the week and students come away with learning how to think creatively, how to interact and empathize with people who may have a disability, and how to apply their ideas to bioengineering problems.
