Kids experiment

Brandon Luckey, 7, and Natalia Dos-Santos, 8, do science experiments with household items at the Berkshire Museum in 2013. The Berkshire County STEM Week runs from Oct. 18-22, virtually this year, with programming hosted by Pittsfield Community Television. 

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and the Berkshire STEM Network will offer virtual programming for local public school students, K-12 educators and the general community during Berkshire County STEM Week (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) from Oct. 18-22. Berkshire Community College will also participate.

A complement to the statewide STEM Week initiative, Berkshire County STEM Week’s theme is “See Yourself in STEM.”

Free and open to the public, the week will feature a series of unique virtual panels, workshops, speakers, tours and information about opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math in the Berkshires and beyond.

Pittsfield Community Television will be the platform host for the week’s series of events. Community members can access programming on cable access or at pittsfieldtv.org. See a full program schedule at mcla.edu/stemweek.
