Chester, Pa. – Over the course of history, young minds from around the world have birthed some of the most recognizable and ingenious inventions. From Louis Braille, who invented the famous system of reading and writing by means of raised dots at the age of 15, to George Nissen, who at the age of 16 decided to use scrap steel materials and a piece of stretched canvas to create the first trampoline, creative young ingénues have pushed the limits of creativity and design.
Both resident and day programs are available. The camp is offered in two sessions: June 25-28 (day and resident) or July 16-19 (day only). The day camp fee is $400 and includes materials, lab fees, and lunches. The resident camp fee is an additional $400, which also includes room, board, and evening activities. All sessions are held on the Main Campus in Chester, Pa.
Space is limited and available on a first come – first serve basis. For more information and an application, please call Maria Wochele at 610-499-4051 or visit www.widener.edu/soe/engsucamps.asp.
Now in its 15th year, the Engineering Summer Camp was developed by engineering faculty at Widener to introduce high school students to the field of engineering in a nurturing, noncompetitive, “hands-on” environment. The four-day experience is complete with computer workshops, demonstrations, films, laboratory exercises, and discussion groups. Whether making concrete blocks or launching bottle rockets, students will have the opportunity to explore the fields of chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering, all while having fun.
