The Johns Hopkins University and Baltimore City Schools have partnered to create the city’s first pre-K through 8th grade school dedicated to giving students a foundation in engineering and computer skills.
Every class at the Barclay Elementary/Middle School will feature elements of engineering and computer science, using a curriculum supported by educators at the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering. The school is opening a new cutting-edge laboratory, cofounded by city schools and the university, outfitted with 3D printers, custom-programmed computers, smartboards and a makerspace.
All together, the partnership represents a multimillion-dollar, 10-year commitment, with Johns Hopkins investing nearly $5 million. (The Daily Record/Maximilian Franz)
