Community Science Education Program (CSEP)


The mission of the Community Science Education Program (CSEP) is to promote science education among students that attend Baltimore City Public Schools (BCPS) within the local community.


  • Expose students to science-related topics
  • Develop initiatives that expose students to progressively advanced science education
  • Be a conduit whereby schools can receive equipment for use in classrooms

Community Science Fair

Each year, area elementary schools are invited to Johns Hopkins to participate in the Community Science Fair. Each school is allowed to submit three projects for judging by Johns Hopkins faculty and staff, BCPS's administrative staff, and a special guest judge. First, second and third place prizes are awarded based on projects that exemplify ingenuity, clarity and presentation using the scientific method criteria.
