The Office of STEM is part of DESE's Center for Instructional Support and consists of four disciplines: Mathematics, Science and Technology/Engineering, Digital Literacy and Computer Science, and Comprehensive Health and Physical Education. A comprehensive STEM education is relevant, rigorous, and coherent, fostering a positive STEM identity and a deep understanding of the content and practices in and across the STEM disciplines.

Vision Statement:

All Massachusetts students will have an equitable, comprehensive STEM education that fosters a positive STEM identity and enables them to apply their learning to thrive in their everyday lives and participate in informed civic engagement.

Office of STEM Goals:

  • Decrease disproportionality in access to a comprehensive STEM education and related outcomes;
  • Elevate diverse students’ identities, assets, and cultures in policies, resources, and materials; and
  • Increase authentic connections of STEM learning to everyday experiences, local environments, and the sociopolitical context

The Office of STEM works to achieve its Vision and Goals through activities including:

  • Articulating high quality learning standards for mathematics, science and technology/engineering (STE), comprehensive health and physical education (CHPE), and digital literacy and computer science (DLCS);
  • Identifying, developing, and disseminating a rich set of implementation resources;
  • Facilitating networking opportunities for educators to ensure that best practices are shared across districts; and
  • Actively communicating with stakeholders about new developments in the STEM fields.
