For rising ninth through 12th grade students. 

Though current policies restricted on-campus programs this summer, EDW moved to the Zoom classroom with sessions in specific topics and a session in team-led design challenges. Working together across four time zones, over 60 students in the US and Europe took part. 

Student teams built projects including a sign language translator glove, a sun-tracking solar panel, and a working scale model of an Italian castle. Students made the best of a situation in which working face-to-face and hand-to-hand was transformed to working solo in collaboration with others.
