Learn About STEM

Why is STEM important?

STEM permeates through every part of our lives. Science is everywhere and we need experts in tech, engineering, and math.

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, STEM occupations are growing at 17%, while other disciplines are growing at 9.8%. 

That's because researchers are discovering new things at an incredible rate. Ideas and jobs we never thought were possible 20 years ago are springing up today.

We need the next generation to be educated with STEM at the forefront. We want to create critical thinkers, increase science literacy, and enable the next generation of innovators.
