Poly Community Invited to the 2019 Ingenuity Math & Science Symposium

Poly alumni and friends are cordially invited to attend the 2019 Ingenuity Math & Science Symposium on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute.


5:00-5:45 PM Poster Viewing and Refreshments 
5:45-6:10 PM Opening Comments 

Keynote: James E. West, Professor, Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University and National Inventor's Hall of Fame Inductee

6:20-7:50 PM Student Presentations 

The Ingenuity Project provides a rigorous math, science, and research curriculum to 650 middle and high school students in Baltimore City Public Schools at four locations, serving 250 students at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. The Symposium offers a platform for our students to showcase their projects from the mathematics and research curriculum. 

The Mathematics Curriculum was designed in 1997 by Dr. Mikhail Goldenberg to challenge students in problem solving and abstract thinking. By senior year, students who complete the coursework in Calculus BC demonstrate their understanding of the beauty of mathematics and problem solving through in-depth independent or team projects.

The Ingenuity High School Research Curriculum is a three-year program spanning sophomore to senior year serving as an incubator for future scientists, engineers, and mathematicians. During the Research Practicum experience, students work with mentors at Baltimore area colleges, universities, and other research institutions to develop independent research projects. They submit their work to national pre-college competitions such as the Regeneron Science Talent Search.
