Mission - The Benjamin Banneker
Honors Math and Science Society (BBHMSS) is an
organization whose mission is to improve minority
students academic standing with respect to
mathematics and science. An essential component of
this process, that the BBHMSS addresses, is to
reduce historical performance and achievement
inhibitions within these two disciplines. While
the emphasis is on mathematics and science, the
ultimate goal is to promote the development of the
total student who is academically motivated and
responsibly focused. The promotion process
requires supplemental activities in economic
development, leadership skills and problem solving
Tutorial Services - Approximately two
Saturdays of each school month, students visit the
United States Naval Academy located in Annapolis,
Maryland where they receive one to two hours of
tutorial assistance from volunteer midshipmen. In
addition, the students receive hands-on experience
on science projects and/or have the opportunity to
hear a variety of inspiring lectures conducted by
the Naval Academy professionals. During most
sessions, students are mentored by the midshipmen.
All registered students and parents/guardians are
transported by bus to the Naval Academy and
returned to Benjamin Banneker Middle school which
is located at 14800 Perrywood Drive, Burtonsville,
Economic Development - The BBHMSS economic
development program is designed to promote
financial understanding. Students gain training in
basic economic terminology and concepts,
entrepreneurial ventures, investment strategies
and personal finance. Monthly economic development
sessions are provided to assist students in this
effort to increase economic awareness.
