Project STEM

 
 

What is STEM?

According to a recent directive from the National Science Board, “The Nation must act now to address the critical needs of its science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education system.” Coupled with the emphasis on STEM in the Obama Administration’s Race to the Top guidelines, this directive draws attention to the need to prepare more students for advanced study and future careers in these fields and to increase access to rigorous STEM coursework and experts.


 

Occupations with the fastest growth in the coming years, such as biomedical engineers, network systems and data communications analysts, medical scientists and physician assistants, will call for degrees in STEM fields. Student across the country must strengthen their skills in math and science.

“Leadership tomorrow is dependent on how America’s students are educated today. The key to meeting these challenges–to improving our health and well-being, to harnessing clean energy, to protecting our security, and succeeding in the global economy–will be reaffirming and strengthening America’s role as the world’s engine of scientific discovery and technological innovation.”
 -- President Obama
