STEM Achievement in Baltimore Elementary Schools (SABES) is an NSF-funded collaboration between Baltimore City Public Schools and Johns Hopkins University to improve educational outcomes in STEM disciplines throughout Baltimore City’s elementary schools with a targeted focus on community engagement in three neighborhoods.
In addition to detailed background on the SABES program - including current research - this site also include activities to do at home and several pages of useful resources.
SABES is a five-year project that serves nine Baltimore City elementary and elementary/middle schools and seeks to improve STEM curriculum and delivery in grades 3 – 5. In addition to the school day component, the project offers a STEM-focused afterschool program at each school in which students work on student-developed, inquiry-based projects relevant to their communities. School day and afterschool students then showcase their work and learn from STEM experts, along with their families and community members, during biannual STEM Showcases.
