Nate Ball, an inventor who hosts the PBS Kids show Design Squad, visited Widener on April 18 as part of the KEEN Innovators Lecture Series. He spoke to engineering students about his endeavors as an engineer and entrepreneur, informing them of the necessary skill set to become both. Ball, co-founder and chief technical officer for Atlas Devices, is the youngest winner of the Lemelson Student Prize at MIT.

Widener’s membership in KEEN – short for the Kern Entrepreneurship Educational Network – was featured in the spring 2012 issue of Widener Magazine.
