A dedicated partnershipThe Barclay School and Johns Hopkins University are partnering to provide engineering education to all students at the Barclay School with a goal of improving student achievement in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
Combining the knowledge of educators from Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering with that of Baltimore City Public School teachers will provide these young students with the foundation they need to pursue further studies and, ultimately, careers in STEM fields.
Barclay Hopkins STEM Partnership collaborates with Barclay teachers and staff, JHU faculty, staff, and students, Child First Authority after-school program provider, and a variety of regional community partners to offer a range of in-school and out-of-school program opportunities for Barclay students.
Whiting School of EngineeringBarclay Elementary/Middle School works in partnership with Johns Hopkins University’s Whiting School of Engineering to offer both in-school and out-of-school STEM programming, with a key focus on engineering and computer science. This ten-year partnership aims to engage Barclay youth, teachers, and staff, with JHU faculty and students, to help promote STEM education and strengthen Barclay Elementary/Middle School as a university-assisted, PK-8 STEAM community school.

The Barclay Hopkins STEM Partnership began in school year 2015-2016, with the unveiling of a newly renovated, state-of-the-art STEM Lab at Barclay School. Outfitted with smart boards, document cameras, laser printers, and laptops, the Barclay School STEM Lab has a total seating capacity of 60–100. The lab is currently divided into two instructional spaces, with each space focused on science and engineering instruction for students in grades 6-8.For more information about this innovative partnership, please visit the "Barclay in the News" page.
