In the four days, activities will include making concrete blocks, launching soda bottle rockets, and exploring the fields of chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical, and biomedical engineering. Students will experience computer workshops, demonstrations, films, laboratory exercises, discussion groups, and presentations.

When: June 22—25, 2015
Where: Kirkbride Hall
Tuition: $450.00 per session, which includes all laboratory materials and lunches. *Students enrolled in the resident camp will be charged an additional $450.00, which includes room and board as well as evening activities.

The Mickey Vernon Sports History Museum Looking for a New Home

“The Mickey Vernon Sports History Museum of Delaware County, Pennsylvania is closing its doors. For nearly a decade it has found a place in the hearts of sports fans and most recently lived in the Granite Run Mall. Now the Mall is being demolished and the museum is looking for a place to call home.”
I spoke with Jim Vankoski to follow up on this report. Because the Granite Run Mall is due to be demolished, possibly in the fall, the Mickey Vernon Sports History Museum is looking for a new home. The Museum will be temporarily relocated at the Delaware County Historical Society Museum in Chester, 408 Avenue of the States. The Museum will have a grand opening for the exhibit tomorrow, 11-1pm. The exhibit will be at the site until October.

Chester High School Clippers Baseball 2015


Finally, it's baseball season! The Chester High School baseball team had their home opener last week during spring break. They beat Penn Wood in the opener. Clippers lost their second game to Chichester. They were rained out for the first 2 scheduled games which they will make up. The Clippers started to play Academy Park today but the game was postponed due to rain. Clippers later went back to the A Field and tied the score 8-8 in the bottom of the 7th before it began to rain again. They will continue the game next time they play Academy Park. The Clippers' record is 1-1. 

Some of these guys have been playing since 9th grade and are now 11th and 12th graders. They are seasoned players and they love the sport. Coach Mark Bennett said, "this year's team is very competitive." He is looking forward to a good season with his team.
