Wednesday, November 184:00pm–7:00pm

Experience our 8,000 square foot engineering design lab. Modern collaborative development tools, rapid prototyping capabilities, traditional and CNC fabrication. Our engineering and computer science courses provide practical application of our learned design methodology, with a local and global community-minded focus.

Discover our exciting engineering and computer science programs. Including:

  • WikiHouseFirstState - Delaware’s only, and the world’s first, student-led WikiHouse chapter. Developing a proof of concept for sustainable, locally manufactured housing for disaster relief, low-income, or reduced footprint-sensitive applications. Inspired by recent events, we hope this project can provide a rapid, and robust solution to the displacement of refugees from the Middle East and Africa.

  • Interdisciplinary Agriculture Facility - The project will see the construction of a smart year-round food garden, aquaponics, stormwater management system and wild meadow on Mount Pleasant’s campus. Engineering, Science and Culinary student engagement spans the design process from research, development and implementation to end user.

  • CS Matters - An emerging NSF-backed, AP Computer Science curriculum being developed at the University of Maryland, and distributed through a Creative Commons ShareAlike license. The overarching theme of the course is data: the nature and variety of data on the Internet; algorithmic methods for processing and managing data; and ways in which data can be analyzed, visualized, and interpreted to increase human understanding and solve challenging real-world problems. Programming concepts are taught using Python.

After school STEM enrichment programs:

  • All Girls TEAM+S - Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science (TEAMS) is an annual competition for middle and high school students designed to help them discover their potential for engineering. During this competition, students apply math and science knowledge in practical, creative ways to solve real-world engineering challenges.

  • All Girls Makers Club - Giving excited young builders who are typically underrepresented in the STEM fields, the time, space and materials to bring their ideas to life. Our well equipped learning and development space transforms into a Maker’s playground, unleashing creativity into creation.

  • VEX Robotics - The VEX Robotics Competition is the largest and fastest growing high school robotics program globally with more than 12,000 teams from 33 countries playing in over 1,000 tournaments worldwide. Students build innovative robots and compete year-round in a variety of matches. In addition to learning valuable engineering skills, students gain life skills such as teamwork, perseverance, communication, collaboration, project management, and critical thinking.
