stem education teams

STEM Education Teams are groups of educators, community leaders, and other STEM stakeholders who have committed to developing their school’s/community’s STEM plan and giving more students an opportunity to become inspired by and proficient in STEM subjects. These are our current STEM Education Team communities: Attleboro, Barnstable, Brockton, Canton, Dartmouth, Dennis-Yarmouth, Fall River, Foxborough, Freetown-Lakeville, Hanover, Mansfield, New Bedford, North Attleboro, Norton, Old Rochester, Pembroke, Plainville, Plymouth, Provincetown, Sandwich, Taunton, Weymouth, Westport and Whitman-Hanson.

STEM Education Teams recognized by the Southeastern MA/Cape and Islands STEM Network are eligible to receive specialized support from the Network, including technical assistance in developing STEM programming and access to our Corporate Partners program. To start a team in your community, fill out the following application: School District Community Team Application.

Interested in building your school, district, or community’s STEM plan? The SE MA Network has developed this STEM Plan Template, aligned with the commonwealth’s statewide STEM goals. Use this tool to gather an inventory of programs your community currently sponsors, and to identify areas for development and future growth.

Stem Education Teams are eligible to use our Corporate Partners program to request STEM professionals from our region’s companies to make classroom presentations, participate in Career Fairs, offer tours of plants/facilities, or other educationally-focused activities. To request a volunteer, fill out this form and email it to stemcorporatepartner@connectsemass.org.
