STEM at SC State

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.
