Teachers across Massachusetts have also been encourage to hold STEM-related activities in class next week.
“While we know that STEM education happens all year long at schools across the Commonwealth, we look forward to the hands-on projects and lessons that will be on display during STEM week next fall,” said Governor Baker. “Creating opportunities for more students to pursue STEM fields after high school will continue to improve our education system, workforce and economy.”
“It is critical that our K-12 schools provide all students with high-quality, relevant STEM courses,” Lt. Governor Karyn Polito said. “STEM Week will be a wonderful opportunity to showcase efforts already underway in STEM education and highlight opportunities that will inspire more and more students to get involved in these important fields.”
