Kumar Ganesan said he hopes high school students who participate in the Boys and Girls Club activities at his building, 400 W. Park St., also will be able to use his Institute of Science, Engineering and Arts.

The institute, located on the first floor of the building, would engage students working independently on projects in the fields of science, engineering and art.

He said he plans to start the program in the coming semester, though he’s running a bit behind.

The hands-on, project-oriented education experience will better prepare high school students for college, he said. And instead of being a teacher-led program, the students’ curiosities and interests drive the projects.

An example Ganesan cited is robotics: Students would develop their own project and execute it with the help of the institute’s staff.

The institute will charge a fee, but Ganesan said he wants to offer a free semester and scholarship opportunities as well.

For information, contact Ganesan at 490- 1949.
