Developing the Next Generation of STEM Professionals

81% of LETS GO Baltimore youth say that their participation in our programs makes them more interested in a STEM career. Competitive STEM Team experiences encourage youth to develop life-changing skills in teamwork, persistence, critical thinking, and innovation—skills required in the 21st century workforce. In the 2021-2022 school year, LETS GO Baltimore supported over 140 elementary and middle school youth by offering this challenging and engaging opportunity to our partners. This unique learning setting allows exploration of STEM skills with applications in the current STEM-driven workforce—everything from robotics and coding to nutritional science and aerospace engineering!

Preparing and Supporting STEM Educators

Successful students are surrounded by instructors whose roles in the classroom go beyond content deliverers. LETS GO professional development services empower instructors to deliver hands-on STEM learning experiences through a lens that incorporates social-emotional learning and 21st-century skill development. In partnership with 20 youth-serving sites in Baltimore City, 130 instructors participated in intensive training workshops and received ongoing support throughout the 2021-2022 school year. Classrooms in summer 2022 programming also benefitted from near-peer high school mentors through the ‘earn to learn’ Assistant Instructor Leadership program. 63% of grade K-8 program youth surveyed during the school year reported a positive change in their relationships with adults as a result of participating.
