Dunbar’s “Dreamers & Achievers” and the Harbor City Chapter of The Links are hosting the second annual Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Expo at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School for Health Professionals, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., May 10 at Dunbar High School, 1400 Orleans St. in Baltimore.
The theme of the expo is “STEMConnector -Preparing and Linking the Next Generation to Careers in STEM fields.”
The STEM Expo is the culminating activity for students at Dunbar High School who have participated in the “Dreamers & Achievers – Stem-ulation Right Brain and Left Brain” program. This program is funded, in part, by a grant awarded to the Links Foundation, Inc. by Chevron Corporation. As part of the Expo there will be a career panel session in which students can hear from individuals in various STEM professions or those who use their STEM background in many different careers.
Over the course of the past year, the Harbor City Chapter of The Links has continued its program to educate Dunbar students on STEM disciplines through curriculum application content from NASA, hands-on experiential opportunities in their classrooms, and field trips involving interaction with professionals in STEM fields.
The STEM Expo will provide an opportunity to expose members of the greater Dunbar High School community to STEM Education and to help them gain an appreciation for the critical need to prepare the next generation to enter into the increasing number of career opportunities in the STEM disciplines.
