Montgomery Blair High School is excited to host a STEM night on January 26th from 6-8pm in the Student Activity Center located at the University Blvd. entrance. This event is open to DCC K-5 students who have completed the linked registration form. The event is being hosted by the Math honor society and will feature activities in the health services, robotics, engineering, neuroscience, mathematics, coding and more. A strong turn-out of excited elementary students would mean the world to our student volunteers. Due to space limitations, we are limiting the event to the first 200 students to sign up.
