Call for Volunteers: Maryland STEM Festival

The WDCSITE Board is in the process of planning STEM events in our region with school students to increase youth awareness around transportation.  You as WDCSITE members have a unique opportunity to participate in these activities through the Maryland STEM Festival – this is a month-long festival that promotes STEM all around the state from October 11 through November 10.  One of ITE’s primary goals as an organization is to promote transportation to school students through STEM activities, which encourages them to consider future studies and career paths in transportation and related fields. 

We would love to have you join us at these events to help engage students in transportation-related activities.  Some of the events we are planning are below.  Please contact Adam Greenstein (410-246-3843) if you would like to be part of the WDCSITE team in making these events memorable and enjoyable for our region’s young minds!
