Listen to Candance Givens compelling story. She shares her journey to become an Electrical Engineer and then to go on to become a Vice President for a leading defense contractor locally. Candace encourages high school students attending a robotics tournament at the Historic Cherry Hill Elementary / Middle School in Baltimore City.
We are happy to announce the formation of our next workgroup, the STEM Learning Database workgroup. Expanded learning refers to opportunities for students after-school, over the summer, and/or at STEM-rich institutions (e.g., museums, zoo, science center)
The new workgroup will support schools and community groups who need additional information when building STEM partnerships. The workgroup will consider criteria for high-quality STEM expanded learning programming and collaborate with existing initiatives to catalog and build matchmaking resources for school and community partnerships.
Please contact Ellie Mictchell or Dawn Shirley by email at BmoreSTEMnet@gmail.com if you are interested in playing a key role.
At the Tench Tilghman Elementary/Middle School VEX robotics tournament, members of robotics teams took time out to learn about what it is like to become an engineer in Maryland. Mike Hinkey and William Redmond shared their first hand experiences with the youth.
