STEM Magnet High SChools
School STEM magnet programs are offered at North County and South River High Schools. The STEM-BMAH magnet program is offered at Glen Burnie High School. These programs are rigorous and allow students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a STEM field of study or Pathway where they participate in job shadowing, problem-based learning, field experiences, internships and meet STEM professionals to assist them in understanding future STEM careers and the paths they may travel to attain their chosen career. The culminating activity for our STEM and BMAH magnet seniors is a capstone course where they will complete a formal research project or engineering project to include a white paper and a professional STEM conference poster.
Students enter the high school magnet program in grade 9. Over the course of their high school years, students build foundational knowledge and skills in the STEM disciplines and practice key soft skills needed to become successful in college, their community, and in their chosen future STEM career.
