NMTC & Women In Defense announce GOLF4STEM Education Tournament, the longest running tournament for STEM education in the region.
This GOLF4STEM tournament is now in its 8th year and is the longest running tournament supporting STEM programs in the region.
While many events fund valued STEM scholarships for deserving and exceptional students; the NMTC tournament (as are all NMTC events) is far more expansive and funds a broad range of STEM workforce building programs (besides our Mullins Scholarships to both community colleges) that work to multiply these funds.
Through all NMTC member and sponsor funded STEM efforts, we “Ignite the spark of STEM education in our students”, that leads them on a career path to join our much needed STEM educated workforce. For example:
NMTC is the Sole supporter of the STEM Forum/Summit where partnerships are nurtured between APG, businesses and the region’s schools, bringing new ideas to educators and classrooms, in a master-minds advisory setting, twice per year, May and November. (co chairs of the summit are Gary Martin, Deputy to the Commanding General, APG, and John Casner, Executive Director, NMTC). The results of these 12 summits, are:
1. Convened 50+ collaborative sessions involving thousands of participants, to discuss how best to build a STEM educated workforce.
2. Brought together over 100 regional leaders at each of 11+ STEM Summits to recommend actions in STEM.
3. Recruited and featured over 30 prominent speakers from local, state, and national organizations.
4. Served thousands of students with novel STEM learning programs.
5. Supported 80+ teachers, each year, to learn way to better teach STEM, through a Towson University STEM Program for Harford/Cecil County Elementary Teachers.
6. Recruited 50+ new STEM volunteers to support STEM nights and programs.
7. Hosted and funded. with support from APG, STEM Nights & Beyond; five each year over the last 4 years, serving all middle schools in both Cecil and Harford Counties, including private and home-schooled students, for a an exciting night of science.
8. The ‘Beyond’ part is active recruiting of parents to form STEM Clubs in their local community. A stand out is the Youth Benefit Elementary School STEMGators Stem Club, that NMTC help fund, both financially and with web design talent.
9. Host 20 Science Cafes, September through June, in conjunction with the public libraries, and are a way for students to hear professional scientists talk about their work in a relaxed, fun, and informative setting..
10. Funded library LEAP (Learn, Explore and Play) kits, used for home STEM projects, expanding them from one library branch to over 50 branches in both counties. Program is ongoing.
