SESEY (Summer Experience in Science and Engineering for Youth) was created to encourage traditionally underrepresented groups to explore the world of engineering and to consider careers in its variety of fields. This one-week summer program is open to all who are interested in supporting that mission and who otherwise meet the application requirements. The program will culminate with a presentation of student projects and a display at the annual Corvallis da Vinci Days celebration. 

Initiated by Oregon State University in 1997, SESEY is coordinated by the School of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering. Funding for the program is provided through grants from the Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation, the Oregon State University Pre-College Programs, National Science Foundation and Bridges Family Foundation.
