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, robotics, and biomedical engineering. You'll also get to explore our campus – a picturesque, walkable community (not too big, not too small), located just minutes from Philadelphia, the sixth largest city in America.

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!

Typical Camp Activities (all led by engineering professors):
Arduino Programming
Balloon Car Design & Competition
Blood Concentration Measurement
Bone Stress Analysis
Bottle Rocket Design & Competition
Brain-Computer Interface
Concrete Mix Design & Compression Tests
K'Nex Bridge Construction
Lego Robot Design & Programming
