“I’m trying to reach for the stars and slowly progress in society,” said Kevin, President of his class at Osbourn High School and an aspiring guitarist. He jumped at the opportunity to attend the high school’s 12-week Build a Guitar Camp, sponsored by an MCPSEF grant and funded by Miller Toyota. Kevin and 25 other students ranging in age from 11 to 18 walked away from the camp with a custom guitar and the pride of knowing that they made it themselves. The camp succeeded in its goal to give MCPS students an authentic cross-curricular learning experience using art, science, technology, and engineering. It also fed the future aspirations of students like Kevin who said, “One day I want to express that I touched the stars and I made it.”
