MASS STEM Week 2020 Event

Are You Ready to “See Yourself in STEM”?

The Museum of Science and EiE are thrilled to support this year's MASS STEM Week theme, “See Yourself in STEM.” We take great pride in our mission, “To inspire a lifelong love of science in everyone” and we believe that together we will create a generation of problem solvers for a better world.

To allow educators and students alike to see themselves in STEM, the Museum of Science and EiE have developed three engineering design challenges for educators and students across the state. These unique Design Challenges will span the following three grade bands: (1) PK-G2; (2) G3-G5; and (3) G6-G8. They will contain considerations for age-appropriate scaffolds, allow for flexibility for implementation in virtual environment yet provide clear guidance for educators to adjust the complexity of each challenge based on the grade level of the students they service.

Access these Design Challenges for free by creating an account at learn.eie.org.

Participate in online Design Challenges events all week long! Download our schedule at http://bit.ly/MASTEM20.

This year, MASS STEM Week coincides with National Chemistry Week, with the theme of “Sticking with Chemistry”!

Participate in virtual activities facilitated by guest scientists from local universities, and watch our MOS Live educators show you how to make a “greener” glue, reinvent the way we create plastics, share the story on the science of slime, and introduce our animal ambassadors who demonstrate the benefits of “sticky feet.” You’ll hear from a panel of local college students (facilitated by Museum educators), and we’ve got a podcast or two in store, too.

And of course, no Chemistry Week celebration would be complete without the engaging demonstrations from world-famous Professor Bassam Shakhashiri!
