About The Company:
BlueStamp Engineering (BSE) is a multi week summer program where high school students individually build engineering projects. BSE can be attended remotely (3 week sessions) from anywhere in the world or in our hub city of Palo Alto (6 week sessions). Accepted students select and build a project of interest (e.g. prosthetic hands, solar powered electronics, autonomous robots, GPS devices, mini wind turbines, etc.) with a motto of "learning by doing." BSE students and founders have been featured on Cable TV, TEDx, and on the Embedded podcast.
Students go through the entire process of building and testing their devices while supporting their work with full documentation published online and presenting their work at a demo night. Projects have a wide degree of difficulty, from electronics kits to customized designs. Please visit our student page to see what previous students have built.
