Providing the underserved youth of Central MA with engaging STEM experiences

We believe that engaging STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) experiences provide youth with a foundation for success, and we believe that all youth should have these opportunities. Since 2004, the Central MA STEM Network (CMSN) has provided thousands of youth with a variety of exciting experiences that include: classroom STEM experiences and science fair project support, out-of-school time STEM activities, and STEM festivals, as well as professional development for STEM educators. The CMSN Ecosystem is a partnership among businesses, government, non-profits, educational institutions, schools, teachers, families, and youth that enables collaborations for deep and wide-scale impacts in our communities. Our mission to nurture youth who experience low-income and under-representation with engaging STEM experiences throughout Central Massachusetts.
