In spite of the increasing demand, not all schools consider STEM an educational priority. Arlington Baptist Elementary School, a tuition-based program on Rolling Road in Baltimore County didn’t provide a STEM curriculum or afterschool program during the 2014-2015 school year. And it only provided one robotics elective during the 2015-2016.

Early College Program Help
Woodlawn High School Students Advance

For many high school students, going to college and completing the coursework may seem out of reach due to low grades, financial support, or both. However, there is a global, nonprofit organization that is dedicated to closing the achievement gap by preparing students for college and new opportunities.

Established more than three decades ago, the AVID Program (Advancement Via Individual Determination) has favorably impacted over 1.2 million students in 44 states and 16 countries / territories.

Woodlawn High School has 220 students enrolled in the AVID Program and will welcome 125 new freshmen into its Early College Program (ECP) during the 2017-2018 school year.

kwami williams

Kwami Williams was born and raised in Ghana and immigrated to the United States at the age of eight. He attended and graduated from Woodlawn High School where he was a student in the Engineering Magnet Program. His passion for science and innate curiosity led him to pursue a degree in Aerospace Engineering at MIT and to work with NASA. He first returned to Ghana through a service trip, and his encounter with rural poverty in the region led him to restructure his Aerospace Engineering degree and create the first Global Development concentration in the department.

He has since applied his engineering skills to the international development sphere. In partnership with MIT's D-Lab, he has co-designed an award-winning human powered centrifuge, a low-cost heat sealer, cell phone chargers for off-grid communities, and led the research and development of MoringaConnect's processing technologies. Kwami is based in Ghana and serves as the CEO of MoringaConnect.
