What is BlueStamp?

BlueStamp Engineering is a six-week summer program for high school students to build projects they’re truly passionate about. This program runs four hours a day, five days a week starting in mid June and ends in early August (dates vary by location). BlueStamp also invites guest speakers from various engineering fields and start-up entrepreneurs to provide inspiration for a career in technology.

Similar to a real world technology setting, projects are built stepwise with achievable milestones. At the end of the program, each student typically completes the following deliverables:

1. Working prototype of their chosen project. Each student keeps all of their projects, which can be showcased on college and job interviews.

2. Creation of personal webpage hosted on the BSE site including videos of the student describing their work. Each student will have their own BlueStamp web address which can be shared with family, friends, colleges, and potential employers.

3. Complete design documentation. BlueStamp projects are very high level. So just in case others don’t understand how exactly you built a wirelessly controlled omni-directional robot, you will have full documentation from concept to prototype.

We believe the strength and success of the BlueStamp program comes from its singular goal – building real projects that students care about.
