BCCC Partners with Gear Up For Your Future to create
Summer Program for Rising Eighth Graders
Last week, through an $8,000 grant from the Baltimore
City Public School System Fund for Educational Excellence, BCCC partnered
with the Gear Up for Your Future summer initiative hosted by City
Schools. The program engaged 20 rising 8th graders in a week-long STEM
enrichment activities on our Liberty Campus.
The week started with students learning about admission
to the college, our programs, clubs, sports, financial aid, and included a
tour. Prof. Edward Ennels served as the program coordinator and also
facilitated the college and career exploration workshops. Dr. Malathi
Radhkrishnan and Ms. Stephanie Davis conducted science lab projects, and
Prof. Michael Kaye organized a robotics competition in which students built
and programmed robots. Participants were each awarded certificates and
All activities were designed to get students thinking
about their future and how BCCC can help them in meeting their educational
and career goals. The program will be repeated with another group of 8th
grader July 28-31.

footprints! Associate Dean Bryant Evans makes a few simple suggestions in
this week’s summer "Going Green" Column.
