Fulfilling our mission: to be an inspiration hub for tommorrow´s innovators.
Our programs support teachers and students to engage with high-quality STEM activities and experiences. Using the STEM Learning Ecosystems model of cross-sector partnerships, our programs are designed to provide meaningful STEM enrichment for all in our community that goes beyond the traditional walls of the classroom. If you would like to be involved in any of the programs below, contact Rachel Dragos, Program Coordinator, at email@example.com. Join us!
Through our Summer Teacher-in-Residence program, we support teachers in bringing real-world science and technology into their classrooms. We pair Cape Cod Region (Cape Cod, Islands, Wareham and Plymouth) educators from PK - college with STEM-rich institutions to complete a two-week externship and create a curriculum unit for their classroom based on the experience. Teachers who participate in the program receive a stipend and funding towards a field trip the following school year. Teachers can apply starting in January each year.
We support STEM inside and outside of the classroom by lending out STEM materials to teachers and club leaders. Our lending library contains STEM supplies suitable for ages PK - college and includes books, equipment, and STEM lesson kits. Please browse our inventory and check out an item!
WaterWORKS invites high school juniors and seniors to a half-day program at Cape Cod Community College to learn more about the region’s blue economy and the types of career opportunities it presents. The program includes all sectors that wish to participate, including traditional marine trades, marine science and technology, commercial fishing and aquaculture, and water-based recreation. Cape Cod Regional STEM Network plays a key role in bringing this event alongside our community partners such as the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce.
Massachusetts STEM Week takes place for one week in the fall (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 complement the formal instruction happening in the Commonwealth beyond STEM week.
This Fall we are forming PreK-12 STEM professional learning communities for educators across the Cape & Islands to connect, learn from each other and connect to the STEM Learning Ecosystem partners such as WHOI, MBL, industry, museums, and our international partners in Iceland around issues such as: climate change awareness, experiential learning, ocean literacy, and the UN sustainable development goals. Are you interested to join us? Contact Rachel Dragos at firstname.lastname@example.org
