Ashoka is involved in an ongoing collaboration with the Anne Arundel County Public Schools.

As a part of this collaboration, Ashoka, has worked with Dr. Kristina Gillmeister, the STEM coordinator for the schools. We recently interviewed Dr. Gillmeister and Laura Pinto, the Social Sciences Coordinator for the Middle Schools, about the impact on the surrounding communities. What follows are brief summaries of four student teams, and how these teams transformed the communities’ attitudes about young people.
