The Community Outreach Project
The Community Outreach Project introduces Baltimore’s brightest to engineering by working with local middle schools to bring STEM-based programing to students that is innovative, hands-on, and guaranteed to make you smile.
During the Spring 2017 semester, we launched our initiative at Barclay Middle School. As a team, we designed a five-week curriculum that complemented the existing engineering exploration classes offered at Barclay. Different types of engineering were introduced through brief lessons and followed by interactive activities. With our program, young students learned critical thinking while completing hands-on activities such as building bridges with K’nex, designing soda bottle water filters, and more.
We are incredibly excited to announce that we are taking this curriculum and making it an official after-school program at Barclay! Our after-school program helps fill the demand for middle school STEM extracurricular activities with fun projects that allow the kids to create new devices and conduct experiments with Hopkins students serving as mentors.
If you want to gain leadership experience, volunteer and connect with the local Baltimore community, and learn other valuable skills such as grant writing, networking, and public speaking. If you were ever in Science Olympiad, enjoy working with kids, or just want an excuse to play with Legos again, come join our team!
