The Towson University Center for STEM Excellence provides outreach programs to Maryland's K–12 schools. The Bioscience Education and Outreach Program team within the Center for STEM Excellence is committed to engaging, exciting and educating Maryland's elementary, middle and high school students in science. Two of our most long-standing and well known programs are the SciTech student learning lab, a program housed within the Columbus Center in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, and the Maryland Loaner Lab program.

SciTech Student LearningLaboratory

The SciTech program offers students the opportunity to experience biotechnology first-hand in our dedicated student laboratory led by an expert instructor. Located at the Columbus Center in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, SciTech has served over 25,000 students since its inception. All of the curricula are aligned with Maryland's Voluntary State Curriculum.

The Maryland Loaner Lab

The Maryland Loaner Lab (MDLL) is another way our Education and Outreach team is reaching an even greater number of students. This resource for science teachers brings an array of investigations to middle and high school classrooms throughout Maryland. The Maryland Loaner Lab (MDLL) offers comprehensive biotechnology curriculum and lab activities available in a self-contained kit.

Teacher Professional Development

In addition to providing activities for students, the Bioscience Education and Outreach Program also works with Maryland teachers. Through our professional development workshops, teachers learn the skills necessary to deliver the Maryland Loaner Lab activities in their classrooms.
