Envision the Future - A Residential STEM Program for Girls - Replicable Model

Envision the Future is a five-day residential science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) program for girls ages 11-13.  The program is designed to foster interest in STEM fields by modeling effective practices and provided opportunities for girls to engage in challenging STEM activities, explore career options with STEM professionals, meet women role models in STEM fields, and connect with other girls with similar interests and aspirations.

A program of the SE MA STEM Network, Envision the Future brings together collaborators from education, business, government, and community organizations committed to advancing STEM education. The program was held at Bridgewater State University from Monday, July 20 to Friday, July 24, 2015. Elements of Envision the Future are often replicated, throughout the region, by community STEM teams.
