“Employment in STEM occupations grew much faster than employment in non-STEM occupations over the last decade (24.4% versus 4.0%), and STEM occupations are projected to grow by 8.9% from 2014 to 2024, compared to 6.4% growth for non-STEM occupations.” – US Department of Commerce
Programs outside of school can help students to see that STEM is more than a class to finish. Having activities that show real-life implications of STEM can pull together the ideas presented in school and help to show how they benefit our society and even our world as a whole.
“STEM education helps to bridge the ethnic and gender gaps sometimes found in math and science fields. Initiatives have been established to increase the roles of women and minorities in STEM-related fields. STEM education breaks the traditional gender roles. ” – College Board
