Preparing Students for a World of Opportunity

The Maryland Business Roundtable for Education (MBRT) is a coalition of more than 100 leading employers that have made a long-term commitment to support education reform and improve student achievement in Maryland. MBRT is seeking volunteers to implement STEMnet, Maryland’s STEM Innovation Network. STEMnet provides educators with access to programs aimed at accelerating teacher and student growth in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

MBRT is recruiting volunteers for two programs:  Maryland Scholars Speakers Bureau and STEM Specialists in the Classroom. The programs are designed to raise academic achievement, college readiness, and career aspirations among middle and high school students in Maryland.

  • Maryland Scholars Speakers Bureau: Workforce volunteers bring students the message that achievement in school will pay off in college, the workplace and in life.
  • STEM Specialists in the Classroom: Workforce volunteers engage students in hands-on learning experiences that demonstrate the real-world application of STEM content and skills. In this program, STEM professionals co-teach lessons with high school teachers designed to engage students in the real-world application of content knowledge.

Four in-class presentations/demonstrations are required per year. To learn more and register, please visit
