Celebrate New Jersey's Commitment to Excellence in STEM
For the past three years, New Jersey has hosted its annual New Jersey STEM Week to promote the state's commitment to STEM excellence.
In our quest to designate another week to STEM in March we have, with the support of Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker's office, officially designated the entire month of March as New Jersey STEM Month 2018!
Under the management of the New Jersey STEM Pathways Network (NJSPN), New Jersey STEM Month encourages ALL organizations located throughout New Jersey to showcase their work to increase access to STEM learning, to prepare learners of all ages for STEM careers and to connect multiple partners in your STEM work. Highlight your event today by completing the NJSPN Event Form.
To participate in New Jersey STEM Month 2018, identify an existing program, event or site tour to showcase during March 2018 and add it to the state calendar by completing the NJSPN Event Form.
If your organization does not have an existing program or event to showcase during March, reach out to local organizations to discuss a potential partnership for a STEM Month event. You are also welcome to create a new opportunity for state partners to tour a program site or host a new event in your area.
Any of the three options mentioned above are welcomed during STEM Month. The goal is to showcase STEM in your region and spark innovation conversation. Don’t forget to complete the NJSPN Event Form.
Who Can Participate?
Collaboration across organizations is highly encouraged. All organizations that support STEM learning, career pathways and workforce development are welcome to participate.
