Student STEM Clubs

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Clubs for students in grades 3 to 5 are designed to develop excitement and engagement with STEM subjects through a series of hands-on activities.

Clubs are hosted in after-school programs or at community organizations in Roxbury, Dorchester and Charlestown.

The Senior STEM Club, for students in grades 6 through 8, continues the engagement with more hands-on science activities and a greater exposure to technology.

This club includes a science fair mentoring program for students in grades 7 and 8 at the James P. Timilty Middle School in Roxbury.

Summer Jobs for Youths

Mass General is one of the city’s largest employers of local youths during the Mayor’s annual Boston Summer Jobs Program. The program provides students with positive summertime internships that expose them to future careers in science and health care.

Since 1991, Mass General has employed students from East Boston High School, the Timilty Middle School, the Edward M. Kennedy Academy for Health Careers and other partner programs.

Students may work on the main hospital campus in Boston, or at Mass General Health Centers in Revere, Charlestown and Chelsea.

The program connects students with various departments in the hospital, including research labs, nursing, pharmacy, patient transport and more.

Students also participate in weekly workshops that are focused on their well being and personal and professional development.
