For the third year in a row, Cal State East Bay is hosting the DiscoverE camp, which brings dozens of high schoolers to the university's Hayward campus to test their engineering skills and get a taste of college life. Over the course of a week, students learn to code and build robots and bridges from Department of Engineering professors while living in the dorms. 

This year, KTVU's Amber Lee joined the students to not only explore their projects, but to experience the camraderie and motivation to go to college that results from participating in DiscoverE. Watch the video here.

The DiscoverE camp is a culmination of mentoring between Cal State East Bay students and Contra Costa County students that occurs throughout the year, and exposes underserved students to the possibilities of college. DiscoverE at Cal State East Bay is sponsored through a grant from Chevron's Project Lead the Way, which covers each student's full tuition and room and board.
