We have initiatives underway to augment, enhance, and expand the King George County School (KGCS) system’s education programs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM):


(1) Fundraising to support STEM after school programs and local STEM summer camps for attendees and for youth mentors.

(2) Fundraising to support scholarships to advanced STEM camps like Space Camp.

(3) Leveraging the STEM programs of national professional societies like the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, to bring real life experiences and career professionals in STEM into the classroom.


We work collaboratively with the STEM teachers at all levels in KGCS, to identify their needs, develop innovative solutions and seek new opportunities to enrich the STEM educational experience for all KG students.

STEM Fundraising Goals

Summer Camps:  We believe that providing hands-on immersive experiences is key to stimulating more interest in STEM areas.  In that vein, we provide scholarships to local STEM camps like Camp Invention we as national camps like Space Camp, in Huntsville AL. 

We would like to expand our Space Camp merit-based scholarships (~$2,200/ea) to send three KG students in summer of 2024.  This is the top STEM camp in the country, if not the world, and is an excellent opportunity for 5th grade students.   We would also like to provide 30 needs-based scholarships ($235/ea) to the Camp Invention held locally at KG Elementary School each summer, which is a phenomenal program for K-6 that is subsidized by the National Inventor’s Hall of Fame.  Details about these amazing camps can be found by clicking the blue buttons below.   The video below highlights the various simulators used at Space Camp, which is hosted at the US Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL.


How to Give:  In summary, we are hoping to raise ~$13k for Space Camp Scholarships, and ~$7k for Camp Invention Scholarships.  If you are interested in helping us achieve those goals, we would welcome your contributions – no matter how small.  The online STEM Donation Form (click here) will help those interested in designating donations in these areas.  This form as well as additional information on giving can both also be accessed using the green buttons below

Space Camp Trip Reports

The section below provides the trip reports from the Space Camp Scholarship winner.  It all began in 2020 with the vision and passion of Mark and Shari Bradshaw establishing Broadwood Scholarship which sends one 5th grade girl from KGCS to Space Camp each year.  Now in 2023, we are partnering with the Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region and the Duff “McDuff” Green Jr. Fund to sponsor wo 5th grade students to attend Space Camp!
