STEM Gets National Coverage with Local Focus

It seems as though this year more than ever, there is a focus on STEM education and real world application of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Just this week, the Washington Post published an article on how Maryland teachers are enriching the classroom experience by showing rather than telling.

One of the things we are looking at is completely redesigning and adding
programs that would better prepare kids for a different kind of workforce and
economy that needs different kinds of skills.

--JoAnn Roberts, STEM Coordinator
Charles County Schools

Kudos to these initiatives and all programs like eCYBERMISSION that are promoting STEM education in the local community!
