Johns Hopkins Summer Pre-College Programs can give talented high school students the tools to prepare for an undergraduate environment in which even introductory courses are constructed with an eye to disciplinary synergies. There look not only to familiar shared territories (biology and chemistry, say), but also prepare the ground for bold leaps between disparate bodies of knowledge.
