On September 25th, the Maryland Out of School Time (MOST) Network launched the third cohort of its sySTEM Learning Community featuring 21 STEMbassadors from programs throughout the state. In total, 19 organizations from 8 counties are represented, which accounts for over 2,000 students served. The STEMbassador program identifies and supports out of school time professionals seeking to begin or expand their STEM offerings through a professional learning community model.
This year, MOST’s STEMbassadors will receive hands-on training from the Baltimore-based Digital Harbor Foundation in such skills as 3D printing, making, and electronics. Upon completing training, STEMbassadors can transfer that knowledge to their site-based staff and students. You can learn more about the program and MOST’s STEMbassadors here.
