Center Highlight

Earlier this month we celebrated our SABES Afterschool 3rd - 5th grade students' achievements at the annual SABES STEM Showcase. Students from Dr. Bernard Harris, Furman L. Templeton, Barclay, Margaret Brent, Robert W. Coleman, Arlington, and Pimlico schools participated in the year-long program that allowed them to identify a problem in their community and solve it by using the engineering design process model. We want to thank our site partners, Child First Authority, Village Learning Place, Smart Steps, and U.S. Dream Academy for allowing us to work with such a talented and creative group of young scholars!
