STEM Vision & Mission

    Vision Statement: To inspire, empower, and equip the next generation of innovators, problem-solvers, and leaders through immersive STEM education - fostering a community of compassionate lifelong learners prepared to tackle and address the real-world challenges of today and tomorrow.

    Mission Statement:  Our mission is to cultivate a vibrant community of compassionate lifelong learners and problem-solvers by providing high-quality immersive STEM education experiences. Through hands-on field experiences, job shadows, and authentic challenges such as our STEM Changemaker, Community Challenge, Capstone, and Internship experiences that bridge classroom learning with real-world application, we empower students to become innovative problem-solvers and effective leaders within and beyond school walls. We equip students with the mindset, skills, and resilience needed to address today's and tomorrow's challenges with confidence and empathy.

    STEM- solving problems, creating opportunities


    STEM Magnet Programs in Anne Arundel County offer challenging and engaging grade 6-12 opportunities for students to engage in learning content and skills across the diverse fields within the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). 


    Biomedical Allied Health Magnet High School Glen Burnie


    The AACPS STEM Office provides and supports a wide range of STEM-related in-school and out-of-school learning opportunities, including the STEM middle and high school STEM Magnet Programs and the high school level BioMedical Allied Health (BMAH) Magnet Program - a STEM magnet program with a Healthcare focus. Students in the STEM and BMAH magnet programs engage in classes in Problem-Based Learning (referred to as Medical Rounds classes in the BMAH magnet program).

    • The STEM and BMAH Magnet Programs are based on a set of core STEM values.  The link below explains those values for the STEM middle and high school magnet programs. With interdisciplinary opportunities both in and out of the classroom, these STEM programs nurture students to become critical and creative thinkers and risk-takers through collaborative teamwork, research, rigorous coursework, data analysis, exciting clubs, competitions, and hands-on interactions with technology.  Together with our STEM university and industry partners, we prepare our students to succeed and lead in the STEM-driven 21st century!

      Middle/High STEM Values
