Most jobs these days require at least some skill in the fields of STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Classes in STEM education are integrated in K-12 curriculum across the country and here in the Bay State. That’s why for the second year in a row, Massachusetts has instituted a week-long initiative aiming to get kids excited about STEM with a long term goal of building a pipeline of skilled workers ready to join the ranks of its growing STEM workforce. Mass STEM Week includes a variety of special events and activities organized by participating schools and STEM outreach organizations.
