Red Rocks hosts summer engineering program

High school students interested in field invited to take college-level course by Johns Hopkins

Posted

High school students who want to learn more about engineering can look into the Engineering Innovation summer class at Red Rocks Community College.

The Johns Hopkins program is meant for motivated high school students with an aptitude in math and science and an interest in engineering. The course is the summer version of a freshman class offered to undecided engineering majors at Johns Hopkins.

The semester-long course is condensed into four weeks, during which students complete lab activities in computer/electrical engineering, chemical engineering, materials science, civil engineering, robotics, and mechanical engineering.

They also prepare a presentation in response to a Request for Proposal, learn about engineering economics, and write a research paper. They take weekly quizzes and a comprehensive final exam. Students earning an A or B in the course receive three Johns Hopkins college credits.

The course is offered from June 24 to July 19. Class is in session from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. No class on July 4. Prerequisites are Algebra II, trigonometry, chemistry and/or physics, and experience with a spreadsheet application.

For information or to apply to the program, visit https://ei.jhu.edu/.

Interested students can attend an open house from 1-4 p.m. Feb. 23. RSVP required at www.rrcc.edu/engineering-transfer.
