What is The Pioneer Valley STEM Network?

The Pioneer Valley Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Network (PVSTEM NET) is based in the Pioneer Valley, which includes the three Western Massachusetts counties along the Connecticut River and I-91. Regional networks were established in 2004 by the Massachusetts STEM Advisory Council to enable area businesses, institutions of higher education, local school districts, regional workforce development professionals, community based organizations and various municipal or civic leaders to increase the number of area students who participate in career-related programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), while also increasing the number of qualified STEM teachers and improving educational offerings in area schools. The Network is funded through the Department of Higher Education Pipeline Fund. There are nine regional networks spanning the state, including PVSTEM NET.
