STEM Community Outreach
TeraSense cultivates the professional development of Baltimore City STEM students through hands-on exposure to engineering programs.
TeraSense's Jumpstart Program provides STEM students access to cutting-edge Cybersecurity, Systems Engineering, and Software Engineering projects. Our Jumpstart students have gone on to become successful STEM professionals with hands-on experience and a head start in the workplace.
TeraSense leadership takes an active position in Baltimore City community outreach, specifically targeting minority institutions (Bowie State, PG County, UMD-CP, UMBC) to recruit and cultivate the next generation of STEM talent. In 2017, TeraSense became an SBA-recognized HUBZone entity, and our leadership decided to leverage our status as a platform to reach back to Harford County, Carrol County, PG-County, and Baltimore City by targeting strong STEM talent and molding their technical growth and professional development.
Our goal is to strengthen the networks, relationships, and resources that connect academia, industry, and government agencies to facilitate the development of the next generation of STEM talent. Through this approach, our team is able to facilitate the exchange of scientific ideas, impart technical knowledge, and carry out outreach programs to cultivate curiosity and technical talent.
