@OSUPrezDrake, also known as The 15th President of The Ohio State University, Michael V. Drake comments on his experience during the Summer Institute. This year, we were extremely honored to welcome President Dr. Drake as our inaugural keynote speaker. The scholars learned about the intersections of art and politics through music during the civil rights era from Dr. Drake. Together, they engaged in a discussion about Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On album and how it reflects the social and political culture of that era.

At New Albany High School, Isaiah was required to complete a senior project and chose to focus his interests on technology and the brain. Isaiah used his experience at the Summer Institute to learn new concepts about neuroscience and humanities, which he incorporated into a short video documentary showcasing the effects that social media and current technology have on the adolescent mind.
