The Maydm Difference

Maydm’s Culture of Student Leadership




Meet Our Students & Alumni

Lily B. ’20

Student & Web Development Intern

This was my first time helping build and design a website and using WordPress, all skills that will help me plan what college classes I want to take. Maydm has given me an advantage when I apply for college because I have gotten actual working experience in applying skills in helping with the redesign of their website. I appreciate how Maydm has made me feel included in the community and part of a team.

Brandon A. ’20

Intern @ ImageMoverMD

Student @ STEM Academy

I found out that many people do not have internet during the coronavirus outbreak. This is an issue because it not only makes life harder for people in my community but it prevents feedback from being transmitted. Therefore, their voice is not heard and their problems are never resolved. Using my website, I can create an awareness about the lack of internet in…my communities [to help those] who do not have reliable access or cannot afford it, so that their voices can be included and heard.

Scarlet R. ’16

B.S. Computer Science

Williams College '23

I wanted to let you know that my experiences at Maydm set me on the course toward STEM and computer science. It took me a long time to believe that I could do it. But now I’m at Williams College, pursuing a bachelor’s in computer science.

See Brilliance In Action

In each and every experience with Maydm, students are building and creating. Through creating websites, apps, games, or 3D models of inventions old and new, Maydm students are learning the skills and agency to innovate.

Participants merge their interests and passions with technology, creating projects that highlight women and people of color, address climate change, and more.

Read their stories, see their work, and learn about students’ experiences from our many program offerings.
