  • African-American Scientist and Inventor Composition Contest

Months: All year as M2SE activities are incorporated into science / technology / STEAM lab curriculum

Practice Location: Science / technology / STEAM lab

Meeting Schedule: Meeting times are usually during school, but some after school time may be required
