Boston STEM Week
i2 STEM Week will run again in Boston in the 2017-18 school year October 23 – 27. i2 STEM Week is an innovative, hands-on STEM learning experience that is available to all Boston public schools with a 6th, 7th and/or 8th grade. During this week, regularly scheduled classes will be replaced by hands-on STEM curriculum developed by MIT and other leading STEM organizations. Over the five days, teachers and students will work in teams to solve real-world problems in a classroom where hands-on experimentation, critical thinking, and even failure, will be encouraged and used as teaching techniques to engage and inspire students. Throughout the week, teachers will focus on developing 21st century skills such as interdisciplinary problem solving, perseverance, and collaboration.
