the principles of Benjamin Banneker

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
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, Maryland.
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.
