10. John Hopkins University
Called Engineering Innovation (EI), the summer course for high school students with a passion for engineering is offered by the John Hopkins University in several of its locations, including Baltimore, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania and Washington.
The course hopes to get high school students to put engineering concepts to test, to apply math and science to labs and hands-on projects. Basically, they’d be applying the knowledge they amassed in the classroom in the real-world. By the end of the program, students should be more confident in what they learned, both before attending and during the courses, learn to solve problems and test theories, acting like actual engineers.
The program lasts four or five weeks, depending upon the site and it covers lab activities in computer engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, and materials science.
