Maureen McMahon talks about science, technology, engineering and math subjects with a passion akin to those who run music or theater departments. For McMahon, Anne Arundel County public schools' assistant superintendent for advanced studies and programs, that passion reached a new high recently, as her efforts to engage students in STEM studies yielded a $2.3 million Department of Defense Education Activity grant, the school system's second DoDEA award in three years. The grant will support a three-year initiative to increase STEM opportunities at Meade High School, MacArthur Middle School, West Meade Early Education Center and at Annapolis, Pershing Hill, Manor View, Meade Heights and West Annapolis elementary schools.

The planned mixed-use community of Russett in western Anne Arundel County recently marked its sweet 16, going from mostly woods in the 1990s to a setting that's now home to 13,000 residents and several businesses. About one-third of Russett's 610 acres remain open space, otherwise the community is fully built out. Its main road loops through the neighborhood, where landscaped streets end in cul-de-sacs and 12 miles of trails swirl around parks, tot lots, houses and towering trees. The 70-acre Oxbow Lake Nature Preserve, which draws waterfowl and birders, lies west of the houses, dedicated by Russett's developers to the county.
