News from the Frederick County Workforce Development Board...

For the second year in a row, the Frederick County Workforce Development Board (WDB) has partnered with Johns Hopkins University and Frederick County Public Schools to offer a unique college-level Engineering course to a select number of Frederick County high school students.

The partnership was first established last year in support of the WDB’s initiative to develop science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills among Frederick County’s current and future workforce.

The Engineering Innovation program enables rising high school juniors and seniors and incoming college freshmen to earn three college credits from Johns Hopkins University while exploring cutting-edge educational and career options.

Engineering Innovation will be held at Tuscarora High School from July 6 through July 30. A limited number of spaces remain, and the registration deadline is May 12. Generous contributions from Frederick County businesses have resulted in reduced tuition costs for prospective participants. To learn more about this program, including how to register, please visit:
