Housed by MassHire Metro North Workforce Board, we are committed to connecting the region's STEM educators, employers, and students to bolster the work that STEM educators carry out every day.
Metro North Regional STEM Network
As one of nine regional STEM Networks across Massachusetts, Metro North Regional STEM Network brings together educators, students, employers, and communities to support the priorities of the Massachusetts STEM Advisory Council. This includes supporting the work already being done by the region's STEM educators and providing access to resources such as field trip opportunities, career exploration events, and additional educational materials.
The Metro North Regional STEM Network serves the communities of Arlington, Belmont, Brookline, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Malden, Medford, Melrose, Revere, Saugus, Somerville, Stoneham, Wakefield, Watertown, Winchester, Winthrop, and Woburn. We aim to spread our work equitably to ensure that students from backgrounds underrepresented in STEM have access to the same opportunities and resources as their peers.
