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 explore engineering in hands-on interactive sessions, computer activities and engineering demonstrations in the fields of biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical and robotics engineering. You'll also meet and interact with our engineering faculty.

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 four half-days full of hands-on activities, computer workshops, demonstrations, laboratory exercises, and presentations, all while having fun!
