Spend a few hours engaging with students across the Commonwealth, reviewing and providing written feedback on their work to help bring classwork to life and inspire students to see themselves as future STEM professionals!

Applied learning this year is going to be more challenging than ever, so we’re providing flexible industry engagement opportunities for our middle and high school Project Lead The Way students, and those who participated in the STEM Week Challenge. Students will submit their solutions to challenges tackled in class for feedback from you – STEM professionals! We expect projects encompassing a range of disciplines along three pathways: engineering, computer science and biomedical science.
