Acton-Boxborough (AB) Parent Involvement Project (PIP) provides K-12 educational enrichment in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) in Acton and Boxborough, Massachusetts. We host annual STEM events like Market Math and the Star Party, offer STEM resources on our website and at the Acton Memorial Library, support STEM community projects, and partner with other STEM groups.
AB PIP STEM welcomes parent volunteers and student volunteers. Student volunteers may qualify for community service credit and the chance to win an AB PIP STEM Scholarship. To volunteer or find out more, send us an email to email@example.com or attend a monthly meeting.

Due to overwhelming response to GWC, we will host more computer-related events. Come back soon to find out about our newest project—an evening of code for Grades 3 - 5 and their families during the Week of Code, December 5 - 11. In the meantime, take a quick look at Code.org.
Find out about our events and meetings on our Calendar page, read the AB PIP STEM Brochure or print the one-page AB PIP STEM Event List. We encourage new participants and volunteers! Come to a Meeting or drop in to an AB PIP STEM event. Please join us!
Congratulations to the winners of the 2016 AB PIP STEM Scholarship for graduating Acton-Boxborough seniors with an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (shown below). Strong first preference is given to students who volunteered to help lead PIP Community STEM events and activities, such as AB Robotics, Star Parties, Market Math, or the DiscoverSTEM festival. Second preference is given to students pursuing a career in STEM. Find out more.
