Student Clubs/Events

CSM Student Math League: Students can join the Math League which is sponsored by the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC). Students compete twice a year at the national level. The League competes nationally and consistently ranks in the top colleges in Maryland and has ranked as high as 19th in the country. Sign up by visiting the Math, Physics, and Engineering website at

Students at a club meeting around a tableWomen + Math: Attend this day-long event which takes place in October each year featuring math-related workshops, activities, and a dynamic guest speaker. Sponsors of the event hold an essay contest each spring with assorted prizes. Find out more information on our division website!

Energetics Program: If you are a graduating high school student and you are interested in Math, Physics or Engineering, CSM offers an Energetics Program. Energetics is part of a new initiative for recent local high school graduates interested in careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This highly competitive program accepts 20 students annually. The benefits of the program include: scholarship, ongoing support with individualized academic advisement and tutoring, internship and mentorship with a local scientist or engineer who works in the student's area of study.

Robotics: 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,

Other Opportunities: 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.
