STEM in the News

Exciting ways students and the community are connecting with STEM.

In response to the COVID-19 situation we have been working with school districts to provide support for teaching remotely. We offer virtual professional learning programs such as Going Remote with Inquiry-Based Learning and Making Place-Based Learning Phenomenal that can be customized to meet your school district’s specific needs.

Our remote programs:

  • model engaging and effective remote science and engineering instruction
  • align with the NGSS and the MA 2016 STE Framework
  • foster instruction and assessment using the Science and Engineering Practices
  • may be tailored to address the specific needs of your school or district
  • include science content as well as pedagogy

A curated a selection of free, high-quality, trusted, and engaging digital education resources from the extensive PBS LearningMedia library and other WGBH Education initiatives, with a focus on self-directed activities., to support parents and the learners they are caring for.

This is a portal for teachers to access assignable, self-paced, and self-contained activities that provide students and their families with high-quality, standards-aligned material to keep them engaged and learning.

The NASA WEAR Challenge for middle school and high school students gives Artemis Generation students an opportunity to design wearable radiation countermeasures for deep space exploration. Protecting deep space astronauts from high-energy charged particles and solar particle events (SPE) is important to exploration and the Artemis program.

High school students ignite their interest in science and engineering through NASA innovations in Launchpad.

Middle school students (grades 6-8) explore mathematics in action through Real World. These video segments connect classroom mathematics to 21st-century careers and innovations.

This NASA channel is for grades K-5. Students learn more about Our World through video segments. These videos compare the natural world with the designed world, illustrating the ways to make the most of this world while propelling us into new worlds.

Although this year is a different learning experience for us all, BioBuilder Educational Foundation is committed to providing science students, teachers, and their parents with the online resources they need for a successful academic year.

Created specifically for middle school students, BioBuilder is offering a new program, BioBuilders 6-7-8, adapted from our high school curriculum. This program can accommodate virtual, in-person, and hybrid classroom models, and gives students an introduction to BioBuilder's synthetic biology curriculum and opportunity to pursue a group project in biodesign, under the supervision of BioBuilder Teaching Fellows.

Join the Artemis Generation and take on a challenge or help solve a problem.

These are primarily for college students. Current projects include rovers, robotics, and spacesuit interface technology.

See the Artemis Student Challenge page for more details.
