May 10, 2016 | No Comments | By Jessica Ader

HEMI faculty member Professor Michael Falk, also of the Materials Science and Engineering Department, was recently profiled in the STEM Solutions special report by U.S. News & World Report for his work regarding STEM education in Baltimore City.

Professor Falk created SABES: STEM Achievement in Baltimore Elementary Schools in 2013 as a response to the first-hand knowledge he had of how little STEM education was present in Baltimore elementary schools. With help from a National Science Foundation grant, the program aims to improve STEM curriculum and delivery to Baltimore City Public School students in third through fifth grades and has grown from three schools in 2013 to nine schools in 2016.

Professor Falk will speak about his involvement with STEM education at the U.S. News STEM Solutions Conference on May 18th.
