STEM Expo 2019

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) recently-launched Defense STEM Education Consortium (DSEC) that will strengthen kindergarten through college STEM education and outreach programs across the United States. As a part of DSEC, Morgan State University’s Center for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Education (CEMSE) will be an east coast hub that includes Washington, DC; Maryland and Northern Virginia (DMV). The University will be preparing K-16 students for careers in the STEM fields. CEMSE and the Division of Research and Economic Development with the collaboration of Senator Benjamin Cardin as honorary Chairman have been instrumental in sponsoring the Annual STEM Expo at Morgan State University. The Expo provides hands-on STEM activities to middle and high school students from the Baltimore Metropolitan area to explore career opportunities in STEM. In addition, undergraduate students will have the opportunity to dialogue with STEM professionals in business, industry, federal and state agencies from around the state. The STEM Expo is a part of a STEM Workforce Development pipeline that will target underserved, underrepresented, and military dependent communities within the DMV. The DMV Hub will support professional development for teachers, academic enrichment for students, and internship opportunities with DoD laboratories for undergraduate students.
