STEM Professionals: Participate in Think Big! at Newton Library, Oct. 27

The Newton Free Library, NewtonSTEM, and the John M. Barry Boys & Girls Club will again host Think Big! at the Newton Free Library, this time on Saturday, October 27, 2PM-4:30PM.  It’s an opportunity for middle- and high-school students to talk informally (over ice cream from Cabots!) about challenges, satisfactions, and career paths in the wide range of STEM fields. This will be the third iteration, after successful events in November 2015 and March 2018. It will cap Governor Baker’s first STEM week, which aims to raise student interest and awareness in STEM ideas and careers. If you’re a STEM professional — in teaching, research, or commercial/professional work — and you want to inspire and inform the next generation, please email or

Registration for students will open on October 1 at 9AM.
