Over five weeks, students from Widener’s three campuses took advantage of an opportunity made possible through Widener’s partnership with the August-Wilhelm Scheer Institute in Germany for the first-ever internationally held Innovation Sprint.
Partnering with faculty advisors, more than 60 students participated in the annual Summer Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities (SURCA) program, applying what they’ve learned in the classroom to real-life, hands-on projects.
Student projects at Widener often push the boundaries of innovation, but one robotics engineering project rose above the rest to address a major problem in the drone industry.
Occupational therapy and robotics engineering students partnered together to produce 3D printed assistive devices as part of the Make:able Challenge, putting student-led collaboration and innovation on an international stage.
Nursing’s Center for Simulation continues to deliver high-quality simulated learning for undergraduate and graduate students with the latest technology innovations and updated facilities.
