The Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) SIG

The NSTC STEM Special Interest Group (SIG) facilitates communication and collaboration among regional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) professionals.

The STEM Group includes representatives from industry, education, nonprofit organizations and government.  The Group members are interested in increasing and promoting career awareness of STEM fields, strengthening K-16 STEM education and literacy, and identifying and addressing STEM workforce needs in the North Shore region.

The Group participates in grant seeking opportunities and hosts guest speakers in order to expand the STEM dialogue across the community and to identify and promote new and promising regional STEM initiatives in the region.

The NSTC STEM Group meets the third Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at the Cummings Center in Beverly.  If you are interested in participating, please contact Cindy Keegan (ckeegan@analogic.com).

The goal of the STEM SIG is to support the growth of STEM careers, encourage STEM entrepreneurship, and assist in addressing STEM workforce needs.

The NSTC STEM SIG initiated and continues to support the STEM Scholarship program of NSTC.  Anyone interested in learning more about the scholarship program should contact Mary Sarris.
