In-Person Program | BlueStamp Engineering

In-Person Program


Our in-person summer program offers students of all experience levels to learn and improve their engineering capabilities. 

Every student builds their own self-selected project and creates an engineering portfolio to share their work. Students attend workshops, listen to guest speakers, and learn to use specialized engineering tools. Our student to staff ratio is ~4:1.



Before the program starts, each student accesses the BlueStamp Project Book and works with a Lead Instructor to pick a project they’re passionate about. 

This project becomes the foundation for the summer.



Students start building on day 1.

Along the way, they document their progress in their portfolio and learn fundamentals of engineering building and troubleshooting.


Upon completing their base project, students have the opportunity to design and implement custom modifications with their remaining time in the program.



Part of bringing great ideas to life is being able to share those ideas with others. 

Each student is given the opportunity to present at Demo Night. And once the summer ends, their portfolio becomes a powerful tool to share all they’ve accomplished.
