WESTFIELD, Mass (WWLP) – A group of Westfield fourth-graders spent part of their day Tuesday at Westfield State University as part of Massachusetts STEM Week.

“We’re hopeful that being on a college campus and interacting with students and faculty will really give them that opportunity and access to STEM as a career path.”
