SABES Student
  • Margaret Brent has partnered with Johns Hopkins University to deepen science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) lessons for first through fifth graders through an initiative called SABES (STEM Achievement in Baltimore Elementary Schools). SABES- a National Science Foundation program- provides students with STEM (Science, Technology and Engineering and Math) lessons, fun, hands-on STEM projects through the afterschool component and the opportunity for students to present their work at the fall and spring STEM Showcases. Family members are invited to attend these free events to see the student projects and do hands-on STEM activities.
