Why is STEM important?
Times are changing and technology is advancing by leaps and bounds. The global economy that we once knew has a different face and that face is also changing. Old career paths are disappearing and automation is driving the way. New jobs are emerging every day as our existing technologies advance. But that just the tip of the iceberg.
The continual advances in technology are changing the way students learn, connect, and interact every day. Skills developed by students through STEM provide them with the foundation to succeed at school and beyond.
Employer demand for STEM qualifications and skills is high, and will continue to increase in the future. Most of the jobs in our fastest growing industries require workers with STEM skills. The labor market is looking for people who can adapt to an ever-changing workplace.
STEM empowers individuals with the skills to succeed and adapt to this changing world.
