The One8 Foundation and its program, Mass STEM Hub, are excited to announce the STEM Week Challenge for STEM Week 2022, coming up October 17-21. Together with our partners, PBLWorks, this year’s challenge will ask students to grapple with the question “How can we prepare and inspire people in Massachusetts to pursue STEM careers that have the greatest potential for impact?”

Through a 10-hour applied learning experience, middle and high school students will research an in-demand STEM career that interests them AND reach out to professionals in those fields, building their personal networks while making their learning more relevant and real-world.
