BmoreSTEM Ecosystem has launched the Student Advisory Council on July 10, 2020. Baltimore City students from local middle schools, high school and colleges convened virtually to get to know each other, learn about BmoreSTEM’s vision and mission. The SAC will be the voice of students in the City, the sounding board for BmoreSTEM’s workgroup initiatives, and ambassadors and leaders in STEM in their schools, neighborhoods, and communities. The SAC will be meeting once a month during the school year to develop a plan and execute goals for the year. Check back here to learn more about each of our Student Advisory Council members and how you can get involved!
We have heard from many of you, asking how you can help students in Baltimore get through this difficult time. BmoreSTEM, in consultation with City Schools, would like to share the following opportunities to help City Schools students:
- Donate Computers or Tablets: If you have a used, but still serviceable, device you would like to donate, DigiBmore has committed to refurbish, wipe, clean and deliver devices to City Schools students.
- Donate to the Baltimore City Public Schools Emergency School Closure Family Support Fund: The Family Support Fund was created at the request of Dr. Santelises to provide vital resources to Baltimore’s communities and schools through challenges associated with school closing and COVID-19. Donations are used to address priority needs for communities, including technology access and food insecurity. The Fund for Educational Excellence is administrating the funds in partnership with City Schools to identify needs, manage funds, and secure contributions. The difficulty and prolonged nature of this uncertain time requires bold, compassionate steps to support our neighbors and fellow Baltimore residents. Donate by clicking here.
