The MASSACHUSETTS STEM Initiative

Welcome



STEM Summit VI will be held on October 20, 2009 in Sturbridge, MA 

Planning is underway. A committee representing all the stakeholders has begun to identify all the strands to be presented.

As always, the Summit is designed to mobilize the Commonwealth's STEM community to support the STEM Pipeline goals:

  • to dramatically increase student interest in, and preparation for, careers in STEM;
  • to increase the number of highly-qualified teachers in STEM and provide them with timely professional development programs and support; and
  • to increase the number of STEM programs in schools in Massachusetts.

The Challenge continues to be that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the United States face a shortage of well trained and well qualified graduates to fill all the openings in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields now and as we move into the future.

For more information, contact Dr. J. Lynn Griesemer, Executive Director, University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute, and Associate Vice President for Economic Development, UMass President's Office, lgriesemer@donahue.umassp.edu.
