UMBCIn keeping with our commitment to developing programs that promote the well-being and success of our Professional Development Schools’ (PDS) P-12 students, the UMBC Education Department is pleased to announce its first Summer Enrichment Experience (SEE) Scholars program.

With their principal and mentor teacher’s endorsement, UMBC teacher candidates have nominated students from their internship classrooms to attend the summer learning camps at UMBC – free of charge. 

A total of seven students from UMBC PDS schools have been selected as SEE Scholars. Four students from Violetville Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore City will attend Measuring Up! What’s in a Number, an innovative math camp designed and taught by Dr. Christopher Rakes, assistant professor and secondary math educator in the education department. Two student scholars from Laurel Woods Elementary School, a Title I school in Howard County, will attend Science and Engineering: Experimenting with Basic Concepts. One student from Patapsco Middle School in Howard County will attend Sounding Off: The Art of Foley Sound in Media.
