Abstract: LET’S GO Boys and Girls, Inc. is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 corporation with a missionto enable out-of-school organizations, especially those that focus on the underserved, to deliver fun, hand-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education activities to grow the number of students entering technical career pathways. LET’S GO was incorporated in 2010 and is now working with 9 partners in the Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington DC area, and is serving over 1500 students. Our partners include Boys and Girls Clubs, Charter Schools, Y organizations and school systems. Using a business-like approach, STEM curricula are delivered and data are collected to permit the development of a student tracking system quantifying the number of students that participate in the LET’S GO activities and move through the STEM pipeline with the goal of entering the country’s STEM pipeline.
