The Education Innovation Initiative (ei2) is Bowie State University's signature PreK-20 science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) academic enrichment program that is grounded in advocacy for early career pathway exposure amongst under-represented students in Prince George’s County. Through the use of a multidisciplinary approach to discovery-based learning, ei2 provides students with increased access to real-world work experience that produces next generation solutions.
To provide unique access to STEAM enrichment experiences to incentivize progression toward successful completion toward higher education and preparedness toward entry into STEAM and humanities-related careers.
