1,400 attendees take it all in at the 13th annual event in Worcester
Jan 01, 2017
A lifetime of opportunities was on display on November 1 in Worcester, highlighted not only by discovery, but with colleagues and networks reconnecting, as well.
To start off, Congressman Joe Kennedy III discussed the national outlook for STEM education and careers; Kelli Wells, Executive Director for Education at the GE Foundation, shared some exciting STEM plans GE has as it relocates its world headquarters to Boston; and Youth CITIES Founder and Executive Director Vicky Wu Davis, along with several students, described how this innovative program helps youth develop entrepreneurial skills and mindsets.
At the Luncheon Plenary, this year's "The Hall at Patriot Place" 2016 Massachusetts STEM Teacher of the Year, David Mangus, was introduced; UMass President Marty Meehan touted the university’s focus on educating STEM-focused students and producing graduates who stay in Massachusetts as they start their careers; and attendees heard all about the groundbreaking, Massachusetts-based iRobot® Corporation from its co-founder and CEO, Colin Angle, who also shared his personal story of discovering science.
Besides the plenaries, attendees had the chance to peruse over 40 exhibits and choose from nearly 50 breakout sessions.
