Bobcat Cadets attend STEM Academy at South Carolina State University
Baptist Hill High School cadets participated in JROTC’s first ever Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) camp at South Carolina State University (SCSU). Baptist Hill was one of 45 North and South Carolina high schools that attended. Two Baptist Hill Cadets were among 270 cadets who participated in the STEM program. The camp was appropriately named “Camp Bulldog '' after SCSU’s mascot. The cadets were given a choice between Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry, Nuclear/Physics, Cyber Security, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science to explore during camp. All instruction was provided by South Carolina State’s excellent faculty and staff. In addition to the classroom instruction the cadets were given presentations by Boeing and Savannah River Plant, introduced to drone operations and went on field trips to The Citadel and North Charleston Sewer District. The camp culminated with each STEM group presenting their final projects to their fellow cadets.
