Tonia Wang, the STS freshman representative to the College Park Scholars Student Advisory Board, speaks with an admitted high school student who wants to learn about the Clark School of Engineering.

 

During the four open houses for the College Park Scholars program this spring, 20 undergraduates will be volunteering for the Science, Technology & Society program. They speak with high school seniors about the transition to college, the special qualities of UM, and the value added by the College Park Scholars living-learning program. Most prospective students who visited on Feb. 25 and March 11 were choosing between UM and other fine schools of engineering. The remaining open houses occur on April 8 and 15; the STS program shows posters created by sophomores in our Capstone course (CPSP227).

Volunteers included many students in the A. James Clark School of Engineering, including seniors Anne Lederer (Mechanical) and Teju Jarugumilli (Aerospace), and graduate student Jonathan Chang (Mechanical). Younger student volunteers are majoring in Aerospace, Biological, Civil, Electrical, Fire Protection, and Mechanical engineering, and are minoring in Nanoscale Science and Technology, Engineering Leadership and Project Management. Additional students volunteered from the College of Computer Science, Math and Natural Sciences.
