MassSTEMWeek


In order to promote the importance of STEM education and highlight Massachusetts’s world-leading STEM workforce, Governor Baker and Lt. Governor Polito, in collaboration with the STEM Advisory Council, have announced a statewide “STEM Week” from October 21-25, 2019. In conjunction with the Governor’s Office, Science from Scientists is working to raise STEM awareness, inspire the next generation of STEM talent, and show young students the breadth of cool STEM-oriented careers. We are asking employees across multiple industries to take a photo in their STEM attire. There is no one “uniform” for STEM. Whether you wear a lab coat or a hard hat, STEM plays a key role across virtually every industry in Massachusetts. Help us showcase the STEM mosaic that makes up Massachusetts’s thriving economy.

Join Us

1. Take a picture (selfie or group photo) in your “STEM Gear”— (ie. scrubs, lab coat, hard hat, suit and tie, etc.)
2. Post your picture during STEM Week on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and be sure to use the #STEMForAll and #MassSTEMWeek hashtags
3. Tag and challenge your STEM friends/coworkers to show off their gear and STEM pride!
4. Science from Scientists and Massachusetts Executive Office of Education will be retweeting and featuring your STEM-wear throughout the week, keep an eye out!
