Building off the successful 2015 STEM Solutions Build-a-Backpack in San Diego, U.S. News again teamed up with First Book to host this conference-wide service opportunity in Baltimore to inspire a future generation of STEM leaders, and to support classrooms and programs that would otherwise not have access to STEM resources.
On Thursday, May 19th in the Exhibit Hall, we stuffed 1,000 new backpacks with 3,000 new STEM books and then donated them to the Baltimore City Public Schools.
U.S. News also donated an additional 5,000 free books to teachers in the community, which brought the total to 8,000 new books getting distributed to children in Baltimore!
A big thanks to our conference sponsor Leidos who also made a generous contribution to this community initiative!
