As we approach year end, we at EiE and the Museum of Science are reflecting on 2021. While we continue to adapt to the wide-reaching impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, we are touched by the ways our community provided for one another and continued to innovate this year.
The goal of supporting educators, students and their families continues to guide us as we’ve learned to navigate all that this year had to throw at us. We’re so grateful for our role in supporting learners and teachers of all kinds, and the way our partners helped us provide new resources for you to enjoy.
We are particularly grateful for:
- Generous support from Dell that created our Careers For Engineers initiative, as well as provided new equipment for our team to keep making new resources for you!
- Continued generosity from our partnership with NASA, which allows us to offer free online activities and funds continued research. Through our PLANETS 2.0 project, we’ve continued expanding our reach to provide enhanced resources for students with disabilities, Indigenous and Native American students and English language learners
- Our expert educators who supported our professional development webinars, including those at CSTA and from Mass STEM Week, to keep teachers feeling confident as STEM mentors, leaders and facilitators even when we’re out of our classrooms.
- The diverse professional development resources in STEM that we were able to highlight this year, including resources for celebrating National Disability Independence Day, Women’s History Month, and Indigenous People’s Day.
- Our Integrated STEM Solutions to bridge subjects for students in grades 1-5 with hand-on computer science, engineering and math connections!
- Our wonderful community of friends of EiE and the Museum of Science, including our team of staff and our leadership, who have been with us every step of the way.
