Mass STEM Week kickoff, 2021
The fourth annual Massachusetts STEM Week kicked off on [October 18, 2021] at the MIT Media Lab. Organized by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Education and the STEM Advisory Council, Mass STEM Week is a statewide effort to boost awareness, interest, and access in STEM education and career opportunities for learners of all ages and backgrounds.
A focus of this year’s STEM Week is “see yourself in STEM,” with particular emphasis on the importance of mentoring to bolster confidence in STEM subjects among students from underrepresented groups — including girls, people of color, low-income families, people with disabilities, and first-generation students.
"STEM is the toolkit of the future no matter what your interests are,” said Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker.
