After much discussion and consultation with the ST. Mary’s County Health Department, growingSTEMS has made some decisions about the 2020-2021 FIRST Season for our FRC, FTC, FLL ,and FLL Jr. programs. Given the constantly changing nature of the Coronavirus Pandemic, we will continue to review these decisions as the situation in our area changes.
As of today, we have delivered nearly 2,000 face shields to health care facilities. More than 1,000 face shields went to health care facilities in Maryland, with over half of this focused on our local Medstar St. Mary’s Hospital (MSMH). As of today, 5,880 respirators have been delivered back to MSMH, ready for use, along with 5 intubation boxes.Learn More
