The Massachusetts Regional STEM Networks bring together public and private K-12 schools and districts, public and private higher education institutions, business and industry, regional employment/workforce investment boards and non-profit organizations around STEM to address local education and workforce needs. As a regional system, managed by the Department of Higher Education under the direction of the STEM Advisory Council, the networks play a key role in cultivating interest and engagement in STEM activities in their regions, particularly among business, community and school leaders.
The Metrowest STEM Education Network (MSEN) was established in 2007. Upon its inception the Network has maintained its hub at Framingham State University. In 2016 the nine regional networks were reorganized and MSEN is now collaborating with the Central Massachusetts STEM Network as one of the four (soon to be five) new network regions.
