About Us


NewtonSTEM was established in 2011 to draw together Newton (Massachusetts) parents, educators, students, and STEM professionals to promote activities, events, opportunities, and resources related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) that are particularly relevant to the Newton community.


  • Create a clearinghouse of information for Newton parents, students, staff, and community members to share STEM-related ideas, events, and resources related to programs both in and out of school
  • Encourage student awareness, education and interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
  • Tap parents’ connections and resources to identify and engage regional businesses and institutions to support and enhance STEM programming within Newton Public Schools and STEM activities outside of school.
