SciTech Student Learning Laboratory

SciTech Logo  
SciTech is the Center for STEM Excellence's dedicated student learning lab. Located in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore, SciTech engages students in grades 3–12 in intensive hands-on, inquiry-based activities that stimulate thought and excite participants.

With eleven different activities to choose from, educators are able to complement and enhance scientific concepts that are already being taught in the classroom, as well as allow students to meaningfully engage in scientific and engineering practices. Each of our laboratory activities (aligned with Maryland’s state curriculum) are based on real-world problems and issues, allowing students to apply the content they are leaning in new and challenging ways.
