Students can contact the UNI Office of Admissions to schedule a group or individual visit to campus. These visits can target a particular academic program or feature a campus-wide tour. UNI offers several summer camps for students; two STEM camps are offered for the summer of 2012.
The college also sponsors many informal activities that elementary, middle and high school students can experience. For example, every year the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry hosts a Halloween open house that showcases dramatic and informative chemistry demonstrations. The Department of Physics presents the mini-sumo robotics competition every April. UNI hosted Solar Splash, the annual World Championship Intercollegiate Solar/Electric Boating competition in the summer of 2011, and will host the event again in 2012 and ’13.
