LET’S GO Boys and Girls: STEM Education Through Out-of-School Organizations
STUDENTS: We need you to study hard, go to college and become a professional in the exciting fields of technology. LET’S GO (Leadership, Engineering, Technology, Science Generating Opportunities) is the right program for you. LET’S GO check it out by going to the STUDENTS tab.
PARENTS, TEACHERS, SPONSORS, VOLUNTEERS: We want you to use this web site as a central source of information and ideas on how to inspire and support students to increase their STEM Interest and STEM Proficiency. LET’S GO collaborate, share ideas, and help each other to grow the number of students entering technical career pathways.
Our LET’S GO program, along with our two flagship partners, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County and the Y of Central Maryland, has been up and running since January 2009.
We have offered fun, hands-on STEM education activities to over 800 boys and girls. Many of our participating students are now stating they want to become scientists and engineers.
Our results to date encourage us to press on with this program. We are ready to help others replicate elements of our LET’S GO program in your out-of-school organization. We are not standing still. We need more partnerships, more sponsors, more volunteers, and most importantly more students to make the LET’S GO program a go.
