Positive experiences turn campers into students at WVU

Not only are West Virginia University’s Engineering Challenge Camps a great way to introduce students to the possibilities in STEM-related fields, they also serve as a great recruiting tool for the Statler College.

Kemp-Rye's final camp at WVU was the 2017 Engineering in Service Challenge Camp.

Engineering Challenge Camps help long-time camper discover his passion

The Statler College launched its first series of engineering camps at West Virginia University in the summer of 2012, as a way to introduce grade-school students to the field of engineering through an immersive on-campus experience. And one camper, Max Kemp-Rye, is the only camper to attend all six years.

One of the biggest factors hampering the growth of renewable energy is storage. Sun and wind are intermittent and dependent on geography, requiring energy storage and transportation. Batteries are a means of addressing the storage problem, but they have a low-energy density, and are relatively expensive and difficult to transport. David Mebane will be investigating one possible alternative that could potentially create a route to “green” hydrocarbons.
