“There are tons of opportunities here to pursue an interest and find a niche, in existing classes, clubs or teams or if you want to start something new.”
Along with playing soccer in the fall and tennis in the spring, Brian founded the Robotics Club with the help of alumnus Richard Hayman ’63.
Bullis’ new Signature programs suit Brian’s interests perfectly. After an independent study in 11th grade in computer programming, he will be in the STEM Capstone Class next year working on the FIRST Tech Challenge, a yearlong international robotics competition. He will also be involved in an internship with the QUEST Program at the University of Maryland solving real-world engineering problems. “Our administration here has been really flexible and encouraging to me, enabling me to pursue these amazing programs.”
As a counterbalance to his engineering work, Brian also qualified to represent the state of Maryland at the National History Day competition for his documentary “Baltimore Polytechnic.” “I really enjoyed immersing myself in the topic,” from learning to edit video to researching at the Library of Congress and visiting the school itself and talking with former students.
Rather than having to focus on just one of these activities, Bullis allows students like Brian the opportunity to delve into many things. Along with these many projects, Brian is also editor-in-chief of The Bulldog and a member of the National Honor Society. “I thrive on being active and look at every opportunity Bullis offers as an experience that can enrich my life.”
