Operation Catapult

This nearly two-week-long summer program lets you experience college life, meet new friends, dive into cool STEM projects and basically have a blast using all the knowledge you’ve gained in 11 years of school!

What is Catapult?

It's a tasty taco of science, engineering and math awesomeness, with layers of savory STEM opportunities in a delicious shell of fun that lets rising high school seniors reach into robotics, or do cool things like brew biodiesel or make a machine from scratch. Hungry to learn more? Check out this video and get more information below.

Our goal - beyond stimulating your brain, of course - is to:

  1. Integrate and supplement your previous learning.
  2. Explore fundamental scientific and engineering principles and systems.
  3. Provide an opportunity for group living in a campus setting.

What will you have to show for your time on the Rose-Hulman campus?

How about college credits? By completing Operation Catapult, you'll have a jump on your college credits! Finishing Catapult means you'll receive two hours of free elective credits when you attend Rose-Hulman!

Living on a college campus and meeting students from across the country (and world)! A once-in-a-lifetime experience!

What else can you expect?

  • To set up and run advanced experiments
  • Interaction with dedicated professors
  • A chance to see what engineering and the physical sciences are really all about
  • To use every bit of learning and ingenuity you've absorbed in 11 years of school
  • To have a blast the whole time you're doing it!
