    Published on November 2, 2023

     BUZZARDS BAY, BREWSTER, MA :  Cadet Cambria Parrott, a senior at Massachusetts Maritime Academy (MMA; www.maritime.edu), a top-ranked public university with undergraduate degree programs focusing on science, engineering, technology, math, and business that blend academics and experiential learning, was selected as the Academy’s representative at the Commonwealth’s 2023 STEM Week, sponsored by the Healey-Driscoll Administration.

    The annual statewide event, which took place during the third week of October, is organized by the Executive Office of Education and the STEM Advisory Council in partnership with the state’s nine regional STEM networks.  STEM Week seeks to boost the interest, awareness, and ability of all students to see themselves in STEM opportunities.

    Cadet Parrott is a resident of Brewster, Massachusetts. Upon graduating from the Academy in 2024, she will have attained her Coast Guard License and will pursue a career in marine engineering.

    “During my time at the academy I loved learning how to appreciate the impact of engineering solutions on society as a whole,” said Cadet Parrott in her STEMbassador video. “We are working toward creating a more sustainable future, developing energy efficient solutions, and protecting our environment, and my hope is that other students will take part in finding solutions to do so.”

    “Cambria represented the Academy well during Massachusetts STEM Week,” said Rear Admiral Francis X. McDonald, USMS, president of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, noting the importance of STEM education. “The integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics has and continues to be a central focus that is critical to our future.”
