MAsT: Philadelphia meetings will normally have a 90 minute pre-meeting informal meet and greet period as people arrive. Then we gather to take care of chapter business, provide introductions and announcements. There will always be a topic for the meeting (announced in advance). The topic may include workshops, panels, or simply open discussion. During each meeting, there will be time for discussion, exchange of ideas, and opportunities for clarification. All topics will have to do with the dynamics of the Master/slave lifestyle and may include practical skills and practice for communication, nurturing relationships, roles, responsibilities, values, protocols, rituals, etc.
Math, Science, and Technology (MaST) Community Charter School was founded by Karen DelGuercio in 1999. The school began in Northeast Philadelphia in what was once an old steel factory. At the end of the 2004 school year, the school was remodeled and two years later, expansion led to a new school building being constructed. In the last five years, the school has added library and media center, a fitness center, and a maker studio.  In 2014, the school was one of four Philadelphia public schools to beat the national average SAT score.
