Events are powerful extensions of the PLTW coursework that maximize the curriculum’s impact for students and link students to industry. Events also allow teachers, parents, industry professionals, and students to celebrate student learning. Over the course of the school year, Mass STEM Hub hosts a wide range of events including:

In-Person Events Mass STEM Hub provides opportunities for students to showcase their work, connect with industry professionals, and receive authentic feedback through in person events with partners such as Boston Children’s Hospital and Peabody Essex Museum.

Online Industry Challenges  Online industry challenges provide an opportunity for students to submit select projects they’re completing in their Project Lead The Way classes to receive authentic feedback from industry experts and the chance to win industry-sponsored prizes.

College Credit & Scholarships
