More About TERC »


TERC has been introducing learners of all ages to the exciting worlds of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) for more than 50 years. Led by forward-thinking education research scientists, TERC is dedicated to inspiring students through stimulating programs to develop the knowledge and skills they need to ask questions, solve problems, and expand their opportunities in fun and hands-on ways.

TERC recently opened a community room, STEAMworks@TERC, on the first floor at 2067 Massachusetts Avenue, a few blocks from Porter Square across from Walden Street in Cambridge. We are pleased to invite members of our community to attend one of our student – parent/caregiver programs.
