More than 40 students and 12 adult chaperones from Washington Middle and Fort Hill High Schools along with 60 volunteers from Frostburg State University participated in “A World of Experience,” a hands-on learning event held by Maryland Business Roundtable for Education (MBRT) for Next Generation Scholars at Frostburg State University on Saturday, February 24, 2018. During the organization’s first Saturday Learning Experience, 7th–9th grade students explored several programs offered at the college, including education, computer science, business, mass communications, health sciences and engineering.
Frostburg State University President Dr. Ronald Nowaczyk welcomed the students participating in the program to the college campus. Our Executive Director, Brian Dulay, spoke to the students about the world of opportunities available to them.
Among the various educational activities that were held during the event, Melanie Lombardi of FSU-TV3 station helped students learn about the green screen and the mass communications programs. Students also played healthy relationship bingo, and learned how to be active, explore and stay healthy with FSU’s Department of Kinesiology and Recreation.
The event helped boost college and career readiness for students with a demonstrated financial need. You can learn more about our Next Generation Scholars program and the benefits students can receive from it by clicking here.
