John Hopkins Engineering Opportunity for Students

Students have the opportunity to learn more about STEM careers and get hands-on experiences with engineers at John Hopkins University through the Engineering Innovation program sponsored at Clark State Community College.

“It is something I certainly would have done to see if STEM was the right career choice for me,” Kanesha Hall, manager of STEM programming at Clark State said. “In a world where education can cost so much, this is an opportunity to take advantage and see what field of engineering or what career in STEM students may be interested in.”

Hall spoke with students about the Engineering Innovation program as part of the STEMM Idol Speaker Series earlier this year. Students currently in grades 10-12 are encouraged to apply for the program if they meet the following qualifications:

  • Grades of As and Bs in math and science classes
  • Successfully completed Algebra II
  • Successfully completed a lab science course (physics, chemistry and/or biology)
  • Successfully completed a course where the trigonometric functions are taught.  To meet the trigonometry prerequisite students, must be able to use the trigonometric functions and be comfortable applying the laws of sines and cosines to non-right angle triangles.

“If chosen, students will spend part of their summer taking courses and travel to John Hopkins University in Baltimore,” Hall said.

The course runs from June 18 through July 20. In addition to the putting the Engineering Innovation program on their resume, students will earn 240 internship hours.
