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.
Engineering Innovation offers high quality, challenging courses for diverse high school students in a supportive and dynamic environment. We introduce students to engineering, improve college-readiness, and prepare them to succeed in engineering and other STEM fields.
Change the face of engineering by inspiring a diverse and inclusive population of students to become engineers.
In spring 2019, the Engineering Innovation office launched a new, fully online course, Biomedical Engineering Innovation (BMEI). Since that time, BMEI has served more than 250 students.
