COLUMBIA — Chloe A. Bryan, Raveen Jayasinghe and Brock Stephan, all from D.W. Daniel High School, received their certificates of completion for Accelerate, the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science & Mathematics’ virtual engineering program, on May 21 at the Palmetto Club in Columbia.
All will attend Clemson University in the fall.
This one-of-a-kind, three-year engineering program, stresses mastery of the foundational tools of engineering, such as physics, calculus and chemistry, but also places significant emphasis on real-world, team-based projects, creativity and communication.
Sixteen students received their certificates, representing five South Carolina high schools: River Bluff High School in Lexington, J.L. Mann High School in Greenville, D.W. Daniel High School in Central, Summerville High School in Summerville and Lexington High School in Lexington.
These Accelerate students completed a formal application process to be invited into the program and have spent the last three years taking live, online classes, as well as participating in Saturday Experiences, science labs, and annual week-long summer camps.
