Area Students to Benefit from Bowie State Program

December 6, 2013

WHAT:

Students in Prince George’s County will be able to address real-world technology problems and prepare for the careers of the future, thanks to a new collaboration of Bowie State University with the county government and public school system.

Bowie State University has launched a signature program, Education Innovation Initiative (EI2), a college pipeline initiative that provides BSU students with hands-on experience in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM). The program will ultimately target county students from Pre-K through grade 12 with enhanced technology experiences and encouragement to pursue college education. In partnership with Lockheed Martin and other industry leaders, EI2 will engage students in projects working with next-generation technologies in cloud computing, cyber security, mobility, and enterprise collaboration.

Bowie State will announce the new collaboration with the Prince George’s County government and school system, along with plans to expand the EI2 program to high school students in the coming months.
