Massachusetts STEM Week is an effort to boost the interest, awareness, and ability for all learners to envision themselves in STEM education and employment opportunities, and compliment the formal instruction happening in the Commonwealth beyond STEM Week. The theme for the second annual statewide STEM Week in 2019 was “See Yourself in STEM” and took place from October 21st to 25th, 2019 (plus the weekends before and after), and is organized by the Executive Office of Education and the STEM Advisory Council in partnership with the state’s nine Regional STEM Networks.
