MSEN IS AN INITIATIVE DEDICATED TO
PROMOTING QUALITY EDUCATION AND CAREER PATHWAYS IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATHEMATICS (STEM) IN THE METROWEST REGION OF MASSACHUSETTS.
As a member of the national STEM Learning Ecosystems Community of Practice, MSEN brings together K-12 schools, institutions of higher education, industry, non-government advocacy groups, and a variety of non-profit organizations committed to develop partnerships and collaborations based on the sharing of resources, expertise, and common goals.
MSEN initiatives are informed by the urgency of connecting the dots between the talent acquisition needs of STEM industries in the region and the capacity of K-16 institutions to prepare local students for STEM career pathways.
The Collaborating Partners of MSEN aim to transform our organization from being a group of dynamic providers of STEM learning that often operate on parallel tracks, to an actual system of partners. Through a web of interaction and collaborations, we aim to integrate and articulate our STEM efforts so that youth, especially those financially disadvantaged and from underrepresented populations, have access to quality STEM programming throughout their K-12 and college education programs.
