Learning should be fun. CSM's academic and enrichment classes are designed to teach new and meaningful skills, develop new interests and hobbies, build confidence, and introduce career fields while being fun and engaging.
CSM’s Center for Civic Engagement and Service-Learning works to strengthen the community through experiences centered on service-learning, volunteerism, and civic engagement. The departmental mission essentially addresses two needs by facilitating:
- Quality service-learning opportunities that allows students to meet their learning objectives through service to their community and reflection, and
- A service that connects community members with opportunities to volunteer. The center offers ongoing support to faculty, students, and non-profit partners, professional development opportunities (training and technical assistance), and specialized leadership and service programming for students. We offer a variety of programs both in class and outside of class.
If you are interested in volunteering, please call 301-934-2251, ext. 7367 or e-mail Dr. Sarah Merranko, Director for the Center for Civic Engagement and Service Learning, at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional help.
CSM offers students in middle and high schools the opportunity to compete in Robotics Competitions. CSM hosts the FIRST Robotics Competition. The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is the premier engineering challenge for high school students. Teams of students, working closely with teachers and volunteer mentors, have six weeks to conceptualize, design, build, program, modify and test a robot to participate in a competition that changes each year.
Every January, FIRST unveils the competition or “game” at an annual kick-off event that is simulcast to locations around the world. Teams receive a “kit” of common parts that are used to build the core systems of the robot, but they won’t find an instruction manual! For more information, visit, www.fllmaryland.org.
