The 2021/22 school year was filled with incredible events that were meant to educate and inspire STEM programs for students. Stay tuned for upcoming programs over the summer!

Beyond the Microscope Webinar Series

The purpose of our Beyond the Microscope webinar series is to spark conversation between thought leaders and the greater community. At each event, we converse with a special panel of experts, highlighting the important issues we face in the STEM industry. Thank you to our event sponsors: Boston Globe, Eastern Bank, iRobot, and Massachusetts Business Roundtable.

Upcoming webinar: 

Beyond the Microscope: Neuroscience, AI and the Future of Education (September 28, 2022 at 12pm/ET). Imagine a classroom of 25 students with one teacher teaching a set curriculum at a set pace. Chances are not all 25 students will be learning at the same stride; some will be ahead and bored, others might fall behind, while a few might only retain what’s minimally required. The truth is everyone has the ability to be a fantastic learner, it’s a matter of keeping the mind stimulated and inspired through the act of learning. As a society, we need to ask ourselves: how can we change this behavior in the classroom?

MASS STEM WEEK 2022

Kids in Tech was recently awarded state funding for 2022 Mass STEM Week. Read the full article here.

For the 2021 Mass STEM Week Challenge, Kids in Tech helped students in the Commonwealth visualize the concepts of AI, understand how these systems affect the way our world works, and appreciate the potential they have to change the future. Students utilized two online platforms, Machine Learning for Kids and Scratch, through which they completed engaging activities that allowed them to see what is possible with AI concepts and technology. The challenge culminated in a project in which students designed their own Smart Cities using AI principles and programming language. Learn more about the challenge here.
