STEM Fellowship

The Taft STEM Research Fellowships offer students the chance for deep exploration of their own particular area of interest, while fostering real world skills needed for high-level scientific research. Students are selected through a competitive application process, and these Fellows work with faculty mentors and outside mentors to design and conduct their own experiments and apply their research to real-world challenges. In the spring of 2014, the Taft STEM Fellows presented their research for the first time at the Annual Massachusetts State Science & Engineering Fair at MIT. More than 400 projects were entered, and barely 20 percent of them earned special honors of any kind. Ten of eleven St. Markers were recognized for their achievements, an extraordinary accomplishment and testament to this signature St. Mark’s STEM program.

Over the weekend of May 3-4, 2019, seven St. Markers—all participants in the School's Taft STEM Fellowship program—competed in the annual Massachusetts State Science and Engineering Fair at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Out of more than 200 high school competitors from all across the Commonwealth, four St. Mark' students placed and were recognized with awards.
