Massachusetts Academy of Sciences

At the MAS, we are passionate about making science tangible and exciting to everyone!  We search for and facilitate innovative partnerships between science industries, research institutions, science teachers, college students, and the general public; creating dynamic activities and communities that mutually satisfy the common goals of all our partners.  We combine our powerful resources of pedagogy and STEM field experts to create dynamic educational campaigns.  These campaigns put a “face” to the science that affects everyday lives, and serves up science to the public — making them want to come back for more!  

What is the ultimate goal?  By satisfying our objectives to improve STEM education and STEM workforce development, we satisfy our over-arching goal, which is to increase civic science literacy.  When Massachusetts residents are empowered with scientific knowledge, their decision-making is well informed, their voices are strong, and their communities are recognized; they have a direct hand in how science affects their daily lives.

Massachusetts Bay Community College

Massachusetts Bay Community College fosters educational excellence and student success, prepares students for local and global citizenship, anticipates and responds to the needs of surrounding communities, and contributes to evolving regional economic development.

The Computer Science Program is designed to prepare students for employment in the computer information industry or to transfer and pursue a baccalaureate degree in computer information or any related field. Computer courses give students a sound background in computer programming, data modeling and database design, computer networks, web design and development, accounting, and financial skills.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

The primary mission of the department is the education of its students. Its three undergraduate programs traditionally have attracted over 30% of all MIT undergraduates, and its doctoral programs are highly ranked and selective. A leader in cooperative education, the department has operated the highly successful VI-A Internship Program since 1917. The MIT Women's Technology Program (WTP) is a four-week summer academic and residential experience where female high school students explore engineering through hands-on classes, labs, and team-based projects in the summer after 11th grade. Our goal: to spark high school girls' interest in future study of engineering and computer science.

MATHCOUNTS Foundation

The MATHCOUNTS Foundation provides engaging math programs to U.S. middle school students of all ability levels to build confidence and improve attitudes about math and problem solving. More than a quarter million students participate in our 3 extracurricular math programs or use our resources each year.

Our approach is simple: we make learning math fun. We believe middle school is a critical juncture when a love of math must be encouraged, and a fear of math must be overcome. Our programs build problem solving skills and positive attitudes about math, so students embrace challenges and expand their academic and career opportunities in the future.

Mayland Community College

Mayland Community College is located in the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina. It is currently one of 58 institutions operating under the North Carolina Community College System.
