The Johnson Lab is involved with two JHU Outreach programs dedicated to enhancing STEM education and exposure to Baltimore City Elementary School Students and Teens.

  1. STEM Achievement for Baltimore Elementary Schools (SABES)

We participate in the Afterschool SABES program, where we currently are the mentor team for 4th graders at Margaret Brent Elementary School.

Margaret Brent 4th graders at the STEM showcase with their student driven project, Spring 2017.

Computers in Biology and Chemistry

Our website for the MIT Scratch-based computer programming module we are developing for the SABES after school program. This provides an educational resource for teaching 3-5th grade students about computers in science through simulations and animations.

2.   Biophysics Research for Baltimore Teens (BRBT)

Our lab is hosting Mekhi Closson, a high school student from Baltimore Polytechnic High School, for summer research in computational modeling in biology in Summer 2017.
