AMP It UP is a program to introduce Advanced Manufacturing and STEM to middle and high school students, help them see how their course work is applied in these industries, increase their science and math interests and skills, perform better on MCAS and standardized testing, and potentially consider Advanced Manufacturing and STEM as a career option.

The North Shore WIB matched local area high school teachers with advanced manufacturers for day long externships to show the practical application of math and science in the work place. The teachers and schools will then develop classroom activities and curriculum relating to this experience. Teachers must also agree to attend two half day curriculum development sessions at Salem State University.
