Design. Explore. Engage.
Discover your passions and design your future at Project Inquiry, an innovative eight-month program for high school sophomores that explores concepts in engineering, design, technology, and entrepreneurship. You will learn how to use lab equipment, investigate the design process, and solve real world problems using cutting-edge technologies like laser cutters and 3D printers. Using this newfound knowledge, you will then work directly with professional scientists and entrepreneurs who will serve as mentors for team projects.
Project Inquiry meets once a week for 2.5 hours from October to June. This hands-on program is available for up to 12 students from West Philadelphia schools. Students are selected based on applications and teacher recommendations.
