STEMM Idol: Kanesha Hall

Future engineers can test drive their passion for the subject over the summer with an elite opportunity through Clark State Community College. The school is a host site for an Engineering Innovation four-week course through Johns Hopkins University’s Whiting School of Engineering.

“To have a program created by actual faculty at one of the top STEM universities in the nation, I don’t think you can pass that up because it helps you figure out where to go and in what direction in engineering,” shared Kanesha Hall, the STEM Programming Manager at Clark State Community College. Hall spoke with CJ students about the program during the STEMM Idol Speaker Series on Tuesday, January 24.

Students selected for the program will experience hands-on labs, individual and team projects and competitions, and have the opportunity to earn college credit at Johns Hopkins University. Participants will also take a trip to the Johns Hopkins University campus in Baltimore, Maryland. Students selected into the program will participate for free.

“That’s possible thanks to a donor,” explained Hall. “Originally the donor wanted to focus on just Clark County but now she is expanding it to all of Ohio. She didn’t want to turn anyone away.”

24 students will be accepted into the program. The course will run from Monday, June 26 through Friday, July 21 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. each day (there will be no class on July 4). Applications will be accepted through March 15. Prerequisite information and registration can be found here.
