Universities Space Research Association (USRA)

USRAlogoSTEMaction and the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) have partnered to provide K-12 STEM activities to students in Howard County and throughout the Baltimore-Washington corridor.  The partnership features opening of a USRA STEMaction Center located in USRA's headquarters building at 7178 Columbia Gateway Drive, Columbia, MD (map).  This center provides practice facilities for Maryland FIRST teams, including a full-size FIRST Robotics Competition field, FIRST Tech Challenge field and FIRST LEGO League competition tables.  As USRA and STEMaction expand our scope, the center will become a hub for STEM activities in the region.  Read more about our center in these articles from the Baltimore Sun and Business Monthly, and learn about a visit by Rep. Donna Edwards. See USRA's flyer about the Center.
