The annual Massachusetts STEM Summit promotes Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education and workforce development from early childhood through adulthood. Now in its second decade, the Summit convenes the state’s educators, business leaders, policymakers, parents, students and others to share strategies, initiatives, collaborations and ideas.
This year’s theme is “Promising Practices, Proven Results”. Whereas previous Summits focused on defining STEM (the “what”) and making the case for its critical importance (the “why”), today we find that many professionals from all aspects of the STEM pipeline attend the Summit primarily to learn about successful approaches, models, tools, curricula and other products (the “how”). Thus, we present the 2015 Summit as a venue for peers to interact and share innovations and ideas.
STEM Website Connections
This website, administered by Massachusetts Department of Higher Education (DHE) under the guidance of the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council, is devoted to directing users to information about STEM educational and workforce programs, policies, and resources, all in an effort to strengthen the pipeline of STEM-skilled residents. Funding for the website comes from the STEM Pipeline Fund, a state account created by the Massachusetts Legislature in 2003 under economic stimulus legislation and administered by the DHE. We are grateful to our state representatives for their continued support.
The Governor’s STEM Advisory Council is a 40-member group that represents all sectors of the STEM community—state government, education, and industry.
|Our Mission: Change the Equation works at the intersection of business and education to ensure that all students are STEM literate by collaborating with schools, communities, and states to adopt and implement excellent STEM policies and programs.|
