The Maryland STEM Festival, Inc. (MSF) has been established to operate the Festival. The mission of the Festival is to encourage all students regardless of background and experience to take a greater interest in STEM with the hope they will pursue a STEM related/focused career.
The MSF works for an entire year recruiting as many organizations as it can to participate in the Festival, such as libraries, museums, public and private schools, colleges, universities, government agencies and private companies.
This year, the spotlight will be on Military Careers and their uses of STEM. Some of these careers and jobs are performed by active duty Armed Forces members Others are within Civilian Government Agencies and Private Corporations.
With the encouragement of STEM jobs, the development of STEM education, and the inspiration of our students, we will give Maryland a vibrant STEM economy to make us a national leader in the 21st century economy.
