Discover your pathway through engineering biology
Is It Spring Yet? 

Greetings STEM Pathways Researchers, Participants, and Supporters!  Though it may not quite feel like spring, it is actually here.  Spring is a time for renewal, growth, and expansion!  Time to focus to get even more active, take action, and create change!  We are glad you connected with STEM Pathways to help us do just that in the lives of young people in the Boston Region and beyond!

The 2018 STEM Pathways mini-Jamboree February 17th reaffirmed the need to continue convening, exposing, and educating the community - high school students, undergraduate students, non-profit organizations, parents, BU faculty/staff, etc - in conversations on STEM and synthetic biology!  We are on the right path!  View more photos online here

We invite you to be a part of our upcoming calendared opportunities. We have highlighted a few below but also connect to the website calendar at .  Information is also always being shared on  Facebook and Instagram . Do not miss out!
