“Go Public!” is a campaign organized by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education in partnership with Massachusetts' 29 public colleges and universities. The fall 2012 series featured events at local high schools as well as a special Boston-area event for prospective students who are military veterans. We hope to grow the "Go Public!" campaign in future years to include more school districts and communities.
The WOW Campaign is a public awareness campaign about the exciting career opportunities that exist here in Massachusetts for students who pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) college majors and skills certificates. The campaign is aimed at students, parents and teachers. The WOW campaign video and accompanying poster (.PDF: 5MB) highlight 15 Massachusetts’ STEM professionals who have really interesting STEM careers. These “WOWsters,” as they are referred to, are the face of just some of the exciting careers that await those with strong STEM skills. One or two of the WOWsters are well known Massachusetts personalities!
