STEM In The Community

STEM Week is October 17-21, 2022


Massachusetts STEM Week 2022 takes place from October 17 – 21 (inclusive of the weekend before and after), and is organized by the Executive Office of Education and the STEM Advisory Council in partnership with the state’s 9 Regional STEM Networks. It is a statewide effort to boost the interest, awareness and ability for all learners to envision themselves in STEM education and employment opportunities, and compliment the formal instruction happening in the Commonwealth beyond STEM week.

The theme for the fifth annual statewide STEM Week is “See Yourself in STEM,” with a particular focus on the power of mentoring.
