Maryland Science Center hosts free math and science program for city students
The Maryland Science Center has put this call out to all of Baltimore City's future scientists and engineers:
Beginning January 4, the Maryland Science Center will offer it second annual free program to encourage Baltimore city school students in grades 7-12 to enter the Morgan State University Annual Mathematics-Science-Engineering Fair.
The After School Science Fair Program will provide free transportation and free admission to the Maryland Science Center for student groups and teachers to learn more about competing in the Morgan State fair.
Students will meet with professional scientists and engineers during "ask the expert" sessions to get ideas and discuss project topics. Students who choose to enter the science fair will receive support, guidance and assistance in completing their projects from these same professionals during a free follow up visit to the Maryland Science Center.
Each student who completes the project and submits it to the Morgan State fair will receive a free family membership to the Maryland Science Center.
The program will meet every Tuesday in January, with additional dates being added if students are interested. The program is funded by a major local corporation and a philanthropist.
