Great news for Baltimore students! The Thurgood Marshall College Fund has announced a new program to help engage students in STEM education, leading to both STEM literacy and an increase in the participation in the STEM workforce. If you didn’t know, STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math.
The Vivian Burey Marshall STEM Pilot Initiative, in partnership with the US Army, is a 4 year program where students in grades 6-9 can take part in out of school activities that will support students’ development in STEM education that will help them build confidence, exposure, and their STEM knowledge and skills! You can apply for the program HERE
Its not just for students though – the program also offers professional development for teachers, and mentorship opportunities for students through a coordinated program that capitalizes on assets from local Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs)/TMCF member-schools, Army research facilities and Scientists and Engineers, and academic initiations that serve the students
