The annual Massachusetts STEM Summit promotes Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education and workforce development from early childhood through adulthood. 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.

The Summit itself, hosted and organized for 14 years by a strong education-business-government partnership, exemplifies the power of strategic, purposeful, cross-sector collaboration. Over the years, the Summit has presented countless examples of initiatives in which partners from diverse sectors have come together to leverage each other’s 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. Whether large or small, statewide or local, public or private, partnerships of diverse stakeholders remain crucial to the state’s continued STEM success. Throughout this year’s Summit - through talks, presentations and exhibits - we look to showcase many more of these unique partnerships and their exciting, cutting-edge programs, and collaborations.

The Summit is hosted by the Massachusetts Business Roundtable, the Massachusetts STEM Advisory Council, and the UMass Donahue Institute and supported by generous contributions from a broad array of public and private organizations invested in the economic vitality of the state, including businesses, educational institutions, government agencies, and non-profit entities.
