Putting the STEM in Sailing
Working with the Baltimore Downtown Sailing Center campers from the You Make A Difference STEMMA Corporation participated in a 2 week long sailing experience. This camp helps children in grades 4-8 explore the relationships between sailing and STEM.
Campers spent the first part of their day exploring the relationships between sailing and STEM. During the second half of their day they are on the water developing sailing skills.
The STEMMA Corporation sponsors a week long CSI - Forensic Science camp at Coppin State University for students in grades 4-8. Campers have the opportunity to "solve crimes" like real CSI investigators. Guest speakers from Coppin State University, the FBI, and the Forensics Lab discussed how STEMMA is infused in forensic science. A field trip to the Cryptological Musuem at the National Security Agency (NSA), gives campers on a scavenger hunt to identify technology used to code messages.
