State Awards Over $250,000 to Promote STEM Education

massachusetts-state-house-300x198BARNSTABLE – The state has announced over $250,000 in grants to support the Commonwealth’s Regional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Networks.

Starting in 2004, the state’s Regional STEM Networks serve as hubs for connecting educators, community leaders and industry partners to excite students about STEM subjects.

The networks are among the longest standing STEM Networks in the country.

“I thank all of our STEM Network partners who are working to help meet the future needs of our rapidly changing economy and bolster skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” said Governor Charlie Baker.

The fiscal year 2017 grant for the Regional STEM Networks included incentives for collaboration across regions as well as for aligning focus areas with STEM Advisory Council priorities.

A portion of the grants will go to Bridgewater State University and Cape Cod Community College to collaborate and build a coordinated Regional STEM Network.
