Explore Engineering Innovation (EEI), formerly called Engineering Innovation, is an exciting, college-level, summer program for motivated high school students with an aptitude in math and science and an interest in (or curiosity about) engineering. Students complete hands-on projects in a variety of engineering disciplines (civil, electrical/computer, chemical, materials, and mechanical) and learn to think and problem-solve like engineers. Participating students have the opportunity to earn Johns Hopkins University (JHU) credit. By applying their knowledge of math and science to labs and hands-on projects, the concepts they’ve learned in their high school classrooms are linked to real-world practice. Additionally, their confidence grows as they attend college-level lectures, solve problems, test theories and ultimately learn to think like engineers. Of our Engineering Innovation alumni, more than 80% have gone on to major in engineering or science.
Biomedical Engineering Innovation (BMEI) is a fully online course offered year-round that introduces biomedical engineering concepts to high school students. Participants in this course model biological systems and design experiments to test their models and use engineering principles to solve design problems that are biological, physiological, and/or medical. Students will model human efficiency, the arm, and the cardiovascular system.
They use the content they learned in high school math, physics, and biology to solve practical problems encountered in biomedical engineering.
If you are fascinated by law, public policy, and how government works …

The Schuster Foundation would like to share the opportunity of community service hours for students with horseback riding experience.
The Schuster Foundation is a non-profit organization that sponsors free horseback riding lessons for children from low income families residing in Baltimore City. The lessons take place in four different Baltimore County Farms. The foundation also provides transportation for the kids. This is one of many programs established to assist low income families.
Currently, the horseback riding lessons take place after school hours on weekdays. The lessons start around 2pm-3pm, depending on the farm and the day of the week. And they last about 1.5 to 2 hours. There are typically groups of 3-6 children per lesson. We have professional trainers managing the lessons. These professionals need assistance with the multiple steps required for a rider to get on and off a horse or pony. That is where volunteers shine, by using their own experience with handling horses and showing the trainees the wonderful experience of horsemanship and horseback riding.
If interested in volunteering, please call Tatiana at 443-334-5219 or Connie at 443-334-5228 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

The fifteen-day Chinese program will allow high school students (rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors) who have limited, or no experience in Chinese, to attain proficiency in the target language. In addition to classroom learning, students will be able to use the target language they learn in the classroom while exploring the 13,000 acres of natural beauty surrounding the university. We also encourage novice-high to intermediate level learners to join the camp as well, as there will be plenty of interaction with Chinese native speakers in and outside of the classroom.
Most mornings students will engage in immersive language learning in the classroom. In the afternoon, students will continue to learn through project-based activities (e.g. hiking, organic gardening, biking, caving, etc.) while maintaining as much of an immersive environment as possible. The theme of “Environmental Stewardship” will provide ample opportunities for communication about food, geography, and culture; learning about the cultures and environments of China; connecting to art and history. By the end of the program, students will be able to handle many authentic tasks, including telling and asking about basic personal information, as well as commenting on the geography and environment of China and the USA.
The anticipated cost per student for Sewanee's Chinese Language Camp is $1,900. This will cover all tuition, lodging, meals, and transportation associated with the program once students arrive on campus. Limited scholarships are available. Please inquire for more information about financial aid.

Are you a high school student between the ages of 15-19 years old looking to gain service hours? Consider Volunteering with Camp St. Vincent.
This summer, Camp St. Vincent is planning to run an 8-week program. We are taking all possible safety precautions in regard to Covid-19 to ensure the safety of our campers, our volunteers, and our staff.
Considering the recent pandemic, we plan to adapt the camp so that we can still provide its valuable services to children. We are tentatively planning to hold camp at our Patterson Park location this year. We plan to increase the number of busses that we use, in order to follow both social distancing, and safety guidelines while transporting campers from their shelters and programs to our Camp, due to the increased health risks of transporting the children by bus and assembling in larger groups. But we are still holding camp!
Each day will include reading, math, and STEM enrichment activities, along with a healthy dose of sports, dance, art, and water play activities. Most importantly, we will add special social/emotional modules to help children cope with the increased trauma caused due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Camp will be offered at our Patterson Park location servicing children in shelters and homeless programs across Baltimore City and County. Camp St. Vincent will tentatively operate for 8 weeks for campers, from 8:30am-3:30pm June 21 through August 13, for children ages 5-14.
