Boston Public Schools student researchers demonstrated their science and engineering prowess at Northeastern University during the 77th annual Boston STEM Fair held earlier this month.

On March 4, Northeastern’s Curry Student Center became the site of a city-wide expo for tomorrow’s great scientific minds, who proudly showcased their research exhibits to an audience of judges, volunteers, city officials and peers.

“I was so impressed with the STEM projects that many of our students presented to members of our community,” Boston Public Schools Superintendent Mary Skipper said. “It is clear how much time and effort they have put into these projects and all that they have learned from working with their STEM teachers to develop and test hypotheses, analyze data and develop critical thinking skills through the process.”

A partnership between Boston Public Schools, BoSTEM and Northeastern University’s Center for STEM Education, the annual science fair gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their problem-solving skills by tackling a range of STEM-related topics.

“Our young scientists and engineers from schools across the city of Boston were eager to participate in the 77th annual Boston Science STEM Fair,” Claire Duggan, executive director of the Center for STEM Education, said.
