Widener is a private university in Delaware County that is known for setting students up for success. Over the past twenty years, DVIRC has supported and participated in Widener Engineering’s Senior Capstone Projects, provided support for Widener interns working with area manufacturers, and sponsored summer camps.

In holding with our commitment to advancing manufacturing professions and developing the next generation of talent, DVIRC provided a donation that allowed 5 students to attend Widener’s Engineering Camp for High schoolers. We’re thrilled to learn that the camp was a success and we wanted to share a few pictures of the DVIRC-sponsored burgeoning engineers below:

Selena Rush, from Caver Engineering & Science in Philadelphia, works on a bottle rocket.
Caleb Washington from Philadelphia and the Julia Reynolds Masterman Laboratory and Demonstration School along with Kayla Everett from Little Flower Catholic in Philadelphia work together on the foam synthesis lab.
Deshawn Reason-Gary from Chester (will be attending the Christian Academy) works on the solar panel lab.

About the camp: 

Widener University’s Summer Camp for High schoolers is a 3-day camp where High school students have the opportunity to learn from Widener faculty and current engineering students. The camp consists of interactive sessions led by engineering faculty, computer activities using software relevant to engineering, and demonstrations of engineering principles.

DVIRC is proud to have had the opportunity to support a camp that exposes High schoolers to biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical, and robotics engineering.
