Jared Jubert, a Rich South High School junior, attended Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics camp at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis.
While there, students gain exposure to one of the top five engineering programs in the country. The program is designed to encourage rising eighth- to 11th-graders to pursue a course of study in engineering and technology.
The program, “Extreme Technology, Annapolis Edition,” brought the latest in technological advances to the classroom and lab sessions, according to a program spokesman.
Camp topics included energy and light, infrastructure, transportation and cybersecurity, environmental challenges, flight and fluids, automation, simulation and modeling, biometrics and robotics. Attendees engaged in project-based modules and hands-on design activities.
