• STEM Discovery: Boston

    You can’t cross the street in Boston without seeing the impact of science, technology, and engineering. In fact, the Big Dig, the most expensive highway project in the United States, rerouted some of those very streets into tunnels beneath Boston. Some of the brightest minds in the world call the hub city home, and it’s no wonder why. Skyscrapers built on land that had once been a swamp, a harbor that rebounded from one of the filthiest in the U.S. to one of the cleanest, and institutions like the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard and FIRST® Robotics, make Boston a symbol of innovation and ingenuity.
