Engineering Summer Camp for High School Students
June 2017 – Dates to be Determined
Both DAY ($450) and RESIDENT ($900) Camps Available
If you're interested in engineering, Widener's summer camp is the perfect place to start exploring. We’ll introduce you to this exciting field through the eyes of our top-ranked engineering program.
Widener’s Summer Engineering Camp is serious fun. You’ll make concrete blocks, launch soda bottle rockets, and explore the fields of chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical, and biomedical engineering. You’ll experience computer workshops, demonstrations, films, laboratory exercises, discussion groups, and presentations in a nurturing, noncompetitive, hands-on environment.
Widener's 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.
Students experience a four-day schedule full of computer workshops, demonstrations, films, laboratory exercises, discussion groups, and presentations, all while having fun. High school students make concrete blocks, launch soda bottle rockets, and explore the fields of chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering.
