See the World Through a Scientist's Eyes
What’s under foot? What are things made of? Science projects that emphasize inquiry help students make sense of their world and build a solid foundation for future understanding. The Inquiry Project supports teachers in third to fifth grades as they guide students in hands-on investigations about matter. Students develop the habits of scientists as they make observations, offer predictions and gather evidence. Companion videos show how scientists use the same methods to explore the world. Teachers can connect the inquiry activities to longer-term projects, such as creating a classroom museum that showcases students’ investigations.

The SEEK Program
The SEEK Program is designed to be a fun and engaging educational experience, led by NSBE engineering students and technical professionals dedicated to pursuing professional excellence and giving back to the community. The SEEK Program utilizes a hands-on design curriculum supplied by various Educational Curriculum companies and Cooperate Sponsors. Campers will work in teams, using their knowledge to solve problems and create products while discovering the underlying math and science principles involved in these processes. Each week, the campers will take on a new project, culminating with a presentation, design competition and physical competitions that all parents are encouraged to attend. This FREE three-week program will be open to students who are current 3rd through 5th graders or current 6th through 8th graders*. The program will be held at a local elementary school or middle school, and will include 100 students in each grade level, for a total of 300 students
Programs that prepare students for STEM programs:
Education Innovation Initiative (ei2)
The Education Innovation Initiative (ei2) is Bowie State University's signature PreK-20 science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) academic enrichment program that is grounded in advocacy for early career pathway exposure amongst under-represented students in Prince George’s County. Through the use of a multidisciplinary approach to discovery-based learning, ei2 provides students with increased access to real-world work experience that produces next generation solutions.To provide unique access to STEAM enrichment experiences to incentivize progression toward successful completion toward higher education and preparedness toward entry into STEAM and humanities-related careers.To close the achievement gap in under-represented populations in STEAM and to provide them with unique workforce ready experiences to increase the likelihood of their success in STEAM and humanities-related careers.
Girls Excelling In Math and Science of Prince George’s County (GEMS-PGC)
An after-school enrichment program for girls attending public middle schools in Prince George’s County. University of Maryland (UMD) College Park Scholars and other undergraduates majoring in math, science and engineering volunteer as GEMS mentors. The mentor/mentee relationships are critical to the success of our after-school program. The mentors facilitate the activities and serve as role models. We design the activities to encourage inquiry-based learning and the practice of science skills. GEMS activities include field trips to science-related research sites and guest presenters from the University and the community. We aim to increase the girls’ interest in pursuing studies and careers in math, science and engineering (STEM) fields.
