The Global STEM Education Center


Since our first days, we were generously hosted by Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering, located in the town of Needham in the greater Boston, MA area. Our very special thanks to the President of the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering, Dr. Richard Miller for his strong continued support during all these years! As a true global leader in engineering education and supporter of innovative initiatives, President Miller recognizes the importance of global STEM education and global partnerships in STEM and provided our first “home.” Thank you!


All major universities, many innovative K-12 schools and all major STEM corporations are in the process of broadening global opportunities and significantly expanding their network of STEM education through partnerships with STEM programs around the world. There is an open invitation for the global community in academia, STEM corporations, government and professional associations to join them to promote Global STEM collaboration. The Global STEM Education Center is our response to the invitation.

Our very special thanks to ALL our partners! Their continued support is absolutely crucial! Once again, welcome to Global STEM Education Center! Together with our colleagues and students around the world, we are looking forward to expanding our partnerships and programs! 


We hope our vision inspires you as much as it inspires us! We would like to hear from you. We invite you to join us on our journey! Welcome to 21st Century education! Welcome to the next new world!
