Middle School STEM Outreach
Baltimore Post sponsors local Baltimore Middle School students for a one-day event in the spring of each year: Easy as Pi. This STEM event includes students from most counties in Maryland who converge on the Engineer's Club for hands-on instruction in STEM topics by multiple presenters. We had an astronaut one year! This event is coordinated/chaired by Laura O'Donnell from AECOM; firstname.lastname@example.org.
