Serving Pi in Annapolis


Five of our STEM Ambassadors represented St. Louis School at the Maryland STEM Festival Pi Day event today at the Annapolis State House. Students from dozens of local schools attended the event and learned from our Ambassadors about SLS STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) activities including Ozobot robot coding, Augmented Reality (AR) and First LEGO League (FLL) competition robots.

Our Ambassadors had an opportunity to chat with Lt. Gov Rutherford, Howard County Delegate Jen Terrasa and Edith Perry, Community Liaison for Delegate Joseline Peña- Melnick.

At the end of the day, our Ambassadors visited Delegate Tawanna Gaines’ office thanks to Mrs. Lauren Jagtiani, an aide to Delegate Gaines and an SLS parent. As a member of the Appropriations Committee, Delegate Gaines gave us insight into the budgeting process and how money is allocated in the state.

We also had an opportunity to meet members of the Atholton First Robotics Challenge (FRC) team and learn all about their Raspberry Pi-controlled robot. We were all inspired by students from the Maryland School for the Blind and their use of technology to support their FLL team and classroom work.

Thank you to Mrs. Anne Reed and Mrs. Mimi Teahan for helping to facilitate our visit to the capital.

We are proud of our STEM Ambassadors for serving as role models for younger students and helping inspire future careers in STEM. #STEMatSLS#BeaKnight @MarylandSTEMFestival @Archbaltschools
