Attention Middle School STEM Teachers...Get The Message?

Our teachers and engineers are offering a new Professional Development program titled Getting the Message: Communication Systems and Their Applications in Technologies. This is designed for middle school teachers who are responsible for MA STEM Science Standards. Through practice, discussion and exploration of the CMMC Museumís historical artifacts and displays, teachers will become more attuned to the intricacies of a wide variety of communication systems.

Click here for the full flyer with program details, then choose either the February 9 or February 11 program.

Our 2016 Annual Fund Drive began November 1. Our challenge this year is to raise $50,000! Click here to learn how your gift can support CMMC in pursuit of our mission.

Join Us For the First Saturday STEM Challenge of 2017!

STEM-Egghead-Helmet On Saturday January 28, the CMMC Education Center and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy will co-host a FREE event for families - the first of several STEM challenges for 2017. These STEM Challenges are sponsored by the Cape Cod Regional STEM Network.

The quest? Build a helmet for an egg. And not just any helmet, but one that works well enough to keep that egg from breaking when dropped!

I-Heart-ScienceThere's lots of STEM to explore with this experiment. You might see this challenge as a way to highlight the engineering process itself, and how to move from design to invention. In classrooms where students are studying the brain, the egg serves as a good simple illustration of its areas. And in communities where steps to prevent concussions are being taken, this Challenge opens the way to discussion about brain safety and protection.

Join us from 1pm to 3pm on Saturday, January 28.

The Marconi-RCA National Register District is a 13 acre site that complements the modest, finely crafted buildings, built in 1914, common in the early 20th century. Full exterior Historic Restoration of all 10 buildings on the site had been completed by the Town of Chatham in 2008. Interior renovations, including full ADA compliance, were completed by CMMC, in the Operating Building, ("Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum") in 2010 and the former Hotel Nautilus ("Education Center") in 2014, Recent exterior renovations by the Town of Chatham added ADA access and landscaping.
