spaghetti bridge.

 

Did you know that every summer the JHU Whiting School of Engineering offers a four-week Engineering Innovation program at JHU’s Montgomery County Campus in Rockville for high school students? And that at the end of the course, students with a passing grade earn three transferable Johns Hopkins University credits? It’s true!

The program includes instruction on engineering concepts as well as hands-on projects, such as building a better mousetrap and a spaghetti bridge competition. (Interested in seeing the Spaghetti Bridge Competition from Summer 2009? Check out this short video.)

Eligible students must have completed their sophomore, junior or senior year of high school and also have completed a laboratory science and Algebra II course. (More details about eligibility requirements are available on the Engineering Innovation web site.)

This year, the program at JHU MCC will run from July 6 – July 30, with classes going from 9am – 3pm, Monday-Friday. The application deadline is Monday, May 3, 2010.
