DC Metro HBCU Alumni Alliance, Inc.: Calling all HBCU alums STEM Professionals

DC Metro HBCU Alumni Alliance, Inc. writes:

Calling all HBCU alums STEM Professionals!  

Alumni of HBCUs are concerned about the inadequate representation of minorities in science, technology engineering and mathematics (STEM) related professions. Consequently, the DC Metro HBCU Alumni Alliance (DCHBCUAA) STEM professionals have designed an interactive hand on STEM workshop for students in grades 9-12 to enlighten them on the different professions available in the sciences. As a part of our partnership with Kaiser Permanente and Comcast, the workshop is scheduled for Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 8:30 am-4:00 pm, 2101 Jefferson Street, Rockville, MD.
The DCHBCUAA is asking all alumni who have attended an HBCU, majored in a STEM-related field, and have a desire to give back to the youth in the community, to volunteer to participate in the workshop.
Please let us know your plans for participating in the program by selecting from the options below.

  1. Converse with students about your profession (describe a typical work day, educational requirements, salary and career opportunities for this profession)
  2. Design a 40-minute experiment or activity that immerses students in your area of expertise and garners an understanding and appreciation for your STEM profession. The session should be highly interactive and encourage teamwork with their peers.  Students will rotate between consecutive sessions in groups of 15 -18 students.

Please go to this link to register as a presenter for the STEM workshop. 
Please visit our website at for more information about DCHBCUAA’s programs. 
If you are interested in volunteering for our workshop or have questions, email Dr. Ava Morrow at

Thank you in advance, HBCUs forever!!
