Planning is now underway for Massachusetts STEM Summit 2020, to be held on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at the DCU Center in Worcester. The Summit is once again hosted by the Massachusetts STEM Advisory Council, Massachusetts Business Roundtable, and the UMass Donahue Institute.
The theme for the 2020 STEM Summit, See Yourself in STEM: Connecting Educators to Employers, signals the launch of an exciting new era for this iconic event. In the fall of 2019, Massachusetts held its 2nd annual STEM Week, with regional events across the Commonwealth showcasing hundreds of diverse and creative STEM education and workforce development programs.
The statewide Summit in Spring 2020 will build on STEM Week’s momentum as we explore opportunities for strengthening the STEM talent pipeline through creative approaches to building foundational STEM skills, developing high quality, guided STEM pathways for learners, and deepening employer partnerships to promote STEM career opportunities.
STEM Week provided learners of all ages across the state with the opportunity to engage in opportunities on the ground and in their regions. The 2020 STEM Summit will then afford us all the opportunity to convene, connect, and reflect on this progress together in order to plan for the year ahead to promote STEM as one Commonwealth.
STEM Summit 2020 exhibit proposals will soon be accepted. STEM Summit 2020 session proposals will be by invitation-only from the Summit planning committee.
The STEM Summit is supported by generous contributions from a broad array of public and private organizations invested in the economic vitality of the state, including businesses, educational institutions, government agencies, and non-profit entities.
