Baltimore SEMAA – 2015 Recipient

2015 Grant Recipient Winner

Baltimore SEMAA

Baltimore SEMAA is one of 14 currently in existence and operates in facilities on the campus of Morgan State University, with some funding from NASA. The SEMAA project operates three 8 week Saturday sessions during the school year. A summer program is also provided for 4 on-week sessions.

The mission of SEMAA (Science, Engineering, Mathematics & Aerospace Academy)...

is to expose historically underrepresented youth to activities in the fields of science, engineering and mathematics and to increase the number of these students enrolling in technology-related majors in college.

MCBF provided a grant to help support the project’s goal of instructing underserved youth (grades K-12) in the areas of science, engineering, mathematics and aerospace. The project also believes that engagement in this program on a college campus exposes these students to campus life and hopefully encourages them to pursue a college education in a STEM field.
