Skills to Excel
At School and at Work

Whether you’re a teacher or researcher, a student or an entrepreneur, the Cape Cod Regional STEM Network is here to support and inspire you.

Join us to share ideas and highlight what works when it comes to strengthening STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math—in school, work, and life in our community.


STEM at School

Some of the best ways students, teachers, and parents from across our Network are delving into STEM at school. A go-to place for resources and materials that draw on math and science concepts, including methods from engineering and technology. Featuring hands-on projects that get students engaged in the critical thinking and collaborative work that are so much a part of applying these disciplines in the real world.

What STEM looks like in schools on the Cape and Islands
We know that STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. But it means more than that to us.

STEM in the Community

STEM doesn’t happen only at school. Here’s where we’re highlighting some of the most exciting ways students are connecting with STEM in the field and in labs, in the workplace, and in our communities. Featuring stories from our field experience partnerships that are giving students real-world STEM learning opportunities.
