Student STEM

Career Awareness Program

Some description text for this item

There’s a lot of the current research telling us why STEM education matters in our schools today. Most of the findings will tell you that science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) are where the jobs of the future are. Additionally, STEM workers can expect higher salaries in their fields. Yet, the United States is failing to produce enough skilled STEM workers. Because of this, the United States is fast losing its competitive edge in the world as American students aren’t keeping up with students in other countries in math and science.
The picture becomes even more concerning when you consider the differences in STEM education as it relates to the involvement of minority students.
