Johns Hopkins Summer Jobs Program Partnership

JHSJP - Engineering Innovation Collaboration

JHSJP – Engineering Innovation Collaboration - *This is a competitive placement*

The Johns Hopkins Summer Jobs Program is sponsored by Johns Hopkins University. The program provides Baltimore City Public Schools students the opportunity to complete a paid internship in one of numerous departments throughout the Institution. The program promotes exposure to careers and workplace culture, while providing an educational experience that includes mentoring and fosters personal responsibility.

The Johns Hopkins Summer Jobs Program (JHSJP) and Engineering Innovation (EI) are collaborating to provide opportunities for Baltimore City Public Schools students to participate in Engineering Innovation as their JHSJP placement.

Eligibility Requirements for EI-JHSJP:

  • Baltimore City residents
  • Baltimore City Public Schools students
  • Students at least 15 years old by March 31st of the program year
  • Good attendance throughout high school

Eligibility Requirements for Engineering Innovation:

  • Have As and Bs in their high school math and science classes
  • Successfully completed Algebra II
  • Successfully completed a lab science course (Chemistry and/or Physics).  Many students feel that knowledge of physics is particularly helpful for the course.
  • Successfully completed a course where the trigonometric functions are taught.  To meet the trigonometry prerequisite students, must be able to use the trigonometric functions and be comfortable applying the laws of sines and cosines to non-right angle triangles.  If you learned to use the trigonometric functions in a course other than one called Trigonometry, you will select “Yes, as part of another course” and enter the course name when asked if you have taken Trigonometry on the online application.

Accepted students will:

  • Attend Engineering FUNdamentals (June 17 – 21, 2019 – tentative) and Engineering Innovation (June 24 – July 19, 2019 – tentative) at the JHU Homewood campus as a commuter student
  • Participate as a Johns Hopkins Summer Jobs Program intern following EI (July 22 – August 16, 2019 – tentative),
  • Have the potential to receive college credit (if they earn an A or B in the course)
  • Engage in exciting hands-on lab activities in the fields of chemical, electrical, mechanical, civil engineering, materials science, and robotics
  • Create group projects and presentations, lab reports, take weekly quizzes, and a final exam
  • Be paid for this academic exploration experience
  • Be eligible for full or partial scholarship to help pay program tuition

There are a limited number of opportunities for Baltimore City Public Schools students to participate in Engineering Innovation through the Johns Hopkins Summer Jobs Program.
