  DSU holds Exxon Mobil Bernard Harris Summer Camp

 DSU recently concluded a two-week Exxon Mobil Bernard Harris Summer Camp in which 48 middle school students from throughout Delaware gained a greater understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The June 13-25 summer camp also provided the students with information about exciting careers in science.
The students were able to put their newly acquired knowledge to work in a competition to design and build a small aluminum boat. The teams of students then launched their boats on water to see which one was designed and built to hold the most pennies afloat. The winning team was the Fifa Men, whose members were Ryan Hersch of Wilmington, Tyler Watson of Dover, Vidul Mahendru of Wilmington, Harley Ellis of Wilmington and William Arthur of Camden.
The following slide show displays photos of the kids in the competition:
