The organizers of the Massachusetts STEM Summit are pleased to announce the launch of the 2017 Call for Sessions and Exhibits.
The theme for this year’s Summit – Progress Through Partnership – celebrates the rich tradition of creative collaboration that has been the hallmark of the Commonwealth’s powerful STEM movement since its earliest inception. Over the years, the Summit has presented countless examples of initiatives in which partners from diverse sectors have come together to leverage each others’ complementary strengths, expertise, and resources. These cooperative efforts have yielded innovative, dynamic, and effective STEM programs for in-school and out-of-school education, and workforce development.
Both sessions and exhibit proposals are encouraged to highlight these cooperative efforts. Whether large or small, statewide or local, public or private, partnerships of diverse stakeholders remain crucial to the state’s continued STEM success.
However, please note that this is not at all a requirement; proposals on topics not involving partnerships are equally encouraged.
Proposals for Breakout Sessions and Resource Exhibits may address any of the Summit’s topical strands:
- Early Education
- K-12 Education
- Higher Education
- Workforce and Business
Guidelines for the preparation and submission of proposals, as well as the proposal forms, can be downloaded from the Summit website.
The deadline for submission of proposals is April 28, 2017.
The Massachusetts STEM Summit 2017 will be held at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA, on Tuesday, November 14, 2017.
