Help S.T.A.R. Expose Elementary Students to STEM

The S.T.A.R Project Symposium

The S.T.A.R Program Project Symposium is a unique science fair organized by UMBC students. The project symposium provides UMBC students with a hands-on mentoring experience by teaching fifth graders at Calvin Rodwell Elementary School. The students work with the fifth-grade kids on various STEM projects and have the kids display their creative projects on campus. The symposium gives UMBC students an opportunity to give back to the lives of these children through community service and mentorship.

What is S.T.A.R.?

The S.T.A.R. Program is a student-led UMBC organization that seeks to diversify the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) field by introducing traditionally underrepresented minorities to STEM disciplines. We do this by planning and teaching STEM topics to fifth grade students at Calvin Rodwell Elementary School in Baltimore City.

What will your gift do?

Your gift will make it possible for UMBC students of the S.T.A.R program to develop this symposium, purchase materials to create the STEM projects as well as host and cater the symposium on the UMBC campus.

We hope we can count on your support, today.

Thank you for your generosity!

All contributions raised are administered by the UMBC Foundation for the benefit of UMBC.
