STEM Achievement in Baltimore Elementary Schools (SABES) is a collaboration between the Baltimore City Public Schools and Johns Hopkins University that seeks to improve STEM curriculum and delivery in grades 3–5.

Volunteers give guest lectures during the school day and serve as afterschool mentors for student-developed, inquiry-based projects relevant to their communities. SABES students, along with their families and community members, then showcase their work during biannual STEM Showcases.

MInDS participates in SABES by providing them with graduate student volunteers from the biology department.
