July 22: Engineering Innovation program teaches high school students engineering

Friday, July 22, 2016

FREDERICK, Md.—A college-level summer program for high school students with an aptitude in math and science and an interest in engineering ended Friday at Hood College.

The Engineering Innovation program, created by Johns Hopkins University, provided STEM education to high school students and was taught by Hood College faculty. Hood has run three sections of the program this summer.

One of the main projects of the class was to build a bridge out of spaghetti, and all the sections came together July 22 for a bridge-breaking competition. Eighteen groups of students competed to see whose bridge could hold the most weight. The best bridge held 71.5 pounds.
