Dentistry Summer Enrichment Program

Self-paced program: May 3 to May 23

Virtual program: May 24 to June 25

Students accepted: Junior or senior year of college, or recently graduated (within the last five years) and have completed the necessary science coursework to take the DAT after SEP.

The Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) provides educational and professional development experiences for underrepresented minorities and/or disadvantaged students so that they can successfully gain admission into dental school and pursue a career in dentistry. This includes intensive DAT courses, dental school application assistance, and dental specialty panels, along with academic success, professional development and cultural competency panels. There will also be networking events with Detroit Mercy students, staff, faculty and alumni, along with local dentists.

Black Girls CODE

July 12-23, 2021

9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Students accepted: Girls ages 13-17

This two-week camp provides hands-on, project-based instruction for girls ages 13-17. The camp meets from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with coding, community building and fun! Camp offers a space where girls can learn computer science and coding principles in the company of other girls, with mentorship from women they can see themselves becoming. Participants will be introduced to computing and will incorporate programming to build real-world applications to solve problems within their communities. Students end camp with a project that reflects their understanding of strategies in software development. For more information about the program, see the national Black Girls CODE site.

Science Engineering Exploration Camp (SEEC)

For details on the SEEC programs, see the SEEC Summer Camps page.

SEEC Program I

The Science & Engineering Exploration Camp is a one-week day camp that introduces campers to the exciting world of engineering, science and robotics. Attendees participate in activities that give them hands-on experiences similar to those of a college engineering and science students. Program participants will build and program a robot, while gaining an understanding of manufacturing techniques, robotic control systems, circuits and sensors. This is in addition to activities in the fundamentals of forensic science in biology and chemistry, as well as an exploration of health professions.

SEEC Program II

This is an advanced engineering camp with activities related to coding, autonomous robotics and other activities supporting areas of electronics, mechanics and computer engineering. Participants will be completing a prototype autonomous robot.
