    During this JHU three-credit course, you will complete activities in civil, chemical, electrical/computer, mechanical engineering, and materials science. Your confidence will grow as you watch college level lectures, solve problems, test theories, and ultimately learn to think like an engineer.

    From the convenience of your home or wherever you choose to study, you will complete the same lab activities as our in-person students while collaborating virtually with other students from across the world. You will order a lab kit containing all the supplies needed to participate.

    In this mostly synchronous online course, you will complete the same lab activities as students who attend Explore Engineering Innovation In-Person.

    Working in small virtual 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.


    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.? 

    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.?
