Worcester recently received an NSF grant to fund “fund arts-based incubators for innovation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning in Worcester, San Diego, and Chicago, as well as a new arts-based STEM curriculum; experimental research to measure the impact of arts-based learning on creativity, collaboration and innovation; and public programs using the project’s activities to advance civic engagement with STEM.”
As part of the activities to advance civic engagement, there’s a survey circulating about which option Worcester will use for the civic innovation challenge.
The two options are:
- New transportation solutions to enhance Worcester’s economic productivity, connect its neighborhoods and communities, and improve the quality of life for its residents and visitors.
- New products, processes, and services to limit the growing human and economic impact of severe storms on Worcester by enhancing the community’s ability to respond to these devastating events and adapt to their increasing frequency.
The survey takes about 2 minutes to complete, and they would like responses by December 16. Please take a couple minutes to complete, and share with other folks you think might be interested.
