The Sheldon STEM Station is here!
STEM – you are seeing it everywhere! What exactly is STEM? STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. It’s even gaining the attention of President Barack Obama. The President is quoted as saying:
“Science” is more than a school subject, or the periodic table, or the properties of waves. It is an approach to the world, a critical way to understand and explore and engage with the world, and then have the capacity to change that world…”1
According to the U.S. Department of Education, a very small percentage of American students are seeking out this field and, we are also in desperate need of teachers. President Obama’s main concern has been to expand the number of both students and teachers who are skilled in these fields.
The graph below shows the projected percentage in the increase of STEM jobs from 2010-2020.
