    Explore Engineering Innovation (EEI) is an exciting, college-level, summer program for motivated high school students with an aptitude in math and science and curiosity about engineering.

    During this JHU three-credit course, you will complete activities in civil, chemical, electrical/computer, and mechanical engineering, and materials science. Your confidence will grow as you attend college-level lectures, solve problems, test theories, and ultimately learn to think like an engineer. Projects: Working in small teams, you will test the material properties of spaghetti, design and construct a structurally stable bridge, link concepts of heat transfer and chemical reactions to a small bioreactor, create an electronic device to improve the well-being of the user, and prepare a short presentation to pitch your idea to others in your class. Eligibility: Grade and age requirements- You must be a current high school student or recent high school graduate.? Our typical student is a rising junior (~35%) or senior (~65%) in high school. Talented ninth-graders (rising sophomores) may be considered; however, priority will be given to older students. Graduated seniors are also eligible to participate during the summer before they begin their college career. For 2024, students participating in a residential program must have been born between July 27, 2006, and June 30, 2009.; they must be at least 15 years of age on move-in day and no older than 17 years of age on the last day of the program. We cannot accept students who turn 18 before the final day of the course to a residential program. You must be under 18 years of age to live in the residence hall. Academic Prerequisites: -As and Bs in your high school math and science classes -Completed Algebra II -Completed a course where the trigonometric functions are taught. You must be able to use sine, cosine, tangent, and the Pythagorean Theorem to determine angles and side lengths for right angle triangles. -Completed a full year of high school chemistry and/or physics, including a lab. Many students feel that knowledge of physics is particularly helpful for the course.
