    Jr.Tech will host Girls STEM Summit, the premier Massachusetts statewide summit for girls in grades 8–12 who are interested in pursuing STEM degrees and exploring STEM career choices.

    The key goals of Girls STEM Summit – Statewide are to educate young women in grades 8-12 on various STEM career paths through hands-on breakouts, to encourage students to continue studying these disciplines throughout high school in order to prepare for college degree programs, to inspire through interaction with female professional role models working in STEM fields, to demonstrate that a STEM career is attainable, to impact decision-making at a critical period, and to close the gender gap in the STEM workforce.

    When:  Sunday, March 31, 2019

    Time:    8am-4pm

    Cost:    $67 per student (includes activities, continental breakfast, lunch, and give-away.)

    Who:    8th-12th grade girls interested in STEM!

    Other:  Parents may buy individual seat or block seats available for school groups

    Organized by: Jr.Tech, Inc.

    Facility Host Partner: Wentworth Institute of Technology

    Jr.Tech, Inc., is a Massachusetts-based 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization celebrating 12 years of supporting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.  Jr.Tech delivers year-round coed STEM programs and the annual Girls STEM Summit-Statewide.

    We have a limited number of FREE seats in our summer session 1 offering of Solar Energy Design. This robust 4-week course is offered in partnership with Concord Consortium through a federally supported grant from the National Science Foundation and by General Motors. We are looking for a number of motivated students who are interested in engineering and solar science, to participate in this exciting opportunity, using Energy 3-D software to model and solarize a home. Please let us know if you have a high school student that would like the opportunity take this course at no charge (Note: due to the limited number of seats available for this opportunity, we can only allow up to 3 seats per school.) by contacting us at: for additional information.

    Free Solar Energy Design Curriculum Module:

    VHS has created an abbreviated independent learning opportunity (ILO) version of curriculum that introduces students to Energy3D and guides them to create a solar model of their own home or similar residential building.   That ILO is available within D2L here: Solar Energy Design ILO.  It is also freely available to the public on our website in PDF and zip file (for LMS import) formats here: Solar Energy Design ILO (public).

    The Marjot Foundation supports environmental research at the high school level. Each year we fund individuals or teams of high school students to conduct an environmental field or laboratory research project. Projects may focus on any area of environmental research, and must be designed by the student applicant. Students must write an independent proposal detailing their research goals to be carried out over a one-year period in order to apply for a Marjot Foundation grant.

    Funding from the Marjot Foundation is very competitive. Preference for awards will be given to students from public high schools, although students from private schools may also apply and will be considered.

    For more information, and to apply visit the Marjot Foundation Website.

    Now in its 27th year, the MSMR Student Competition is open to all students from across New England in grades 7-12, whether attending a public, parochial, private or independent school or those who are home-schooled.

    The students are challenged to envision themselves as journalists working at a science news service for their fellow teenagers, and report on a recent biomedical research break-through. They are then asked to make a presentation via an essay, poster or website to explain that breakthrough to their peer audience. Students are able to utilize science websites, TED talks, science news blogs, research journals, newspapers, magazines, news releases from research organizations, interviews or personal contacts to uncover their information, which then must be presented in their own words.

    Students are judged by a panel of industry experts, and winners are awarded prizes in the following amounts:

    1st Place - $500

    2nd Place - $250

    3rd Place - $100

    Honorable Mention – Certificate of Merit

    In addition, classroom grants are awarded to the teachers of the winning students in the following amounts:  1st Place - $100

    2nd Place - $50

    3rd Place - $25

    All student winners also receive a book about science, and they and their parents and teachers are invited as our guests to the MSMR Annual Meeting in June in Boston where they will be honored for their achievements.

    Complete information, as well as an online information packet and directions for entering can be found at:
