STEM Week event encourages students to see themselves in science and technology careers

Covid-19 has given the public a crash course in what it is like to be a medical researcher. The evening news displays graphs and charts describing case counts and statistical data, while the status of vaccine trials is front page news. Now, more than ever, the public is seeing how STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields are rising to the challenge of Covid-19.

It is in this spirit that MIT and the Massachusetts STEM Advisory Council encouraged students to “see themselves in STEM” by producing a week of programming aimed at fostering a lifelong love of STEM.
