In order to highlight the connection of strong STEM education to a talented and skilled workforce, Governor Baker and Lt. Governor Polito, in collaboration with the STEM Advisory Council, are planning a statewide “STEM Week” from October 22-26, 2018.
During STEM Week, schools will be able to highlight specific week-long STEM curriculum (i.e., i2 Learning), special classes on particular days or showcase efforts already underway (i.e., Project Lead The Way courses). STEM Week activities will encompass Pre-K – grade 20 learning, with a particular emphasis on middle and high school STEM courses.
Additionally, during STEM week, at least one member of the Administration or STEM Council Executive Committee will visit classrooms and/or school-related STEM activities (e.g., STEM@Work internships, job shadows, etc.) each day.
