Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology—Operation Catapult

 

Overview

Operation Catapult exposes students to principles of engineering and applied science through group project work. Groups design and conduct experiments, collect and analyze data, reach conclusions and make recommendations for further study. Lectures, demonstrations and tours of industrial plants round out the program. Applicants must have taken three years of high school mathematics and at least one year of chemistry or physics. College credit for program completion is available to those pupils who later matriculate at RHIT.
