Between 2014 and 2024, the number of STEM jobs will grow 17 percent, but only 36 percent of all high school graduates are ready to take college-level science courses. Research has shown that encouraging children to pursue careers in STEM needs to start early – perhaps even in kindergarten – but STEM education isn’t limited to the classroom. There are simple activities you can do at home to underscore the importance of science, technology, engineering and math.
That’s why, in partnership with After-School All-Stars (ASAS), we’ve developed a STEM resource guide. This guide provides important information including facts and figures about the state of STEM education, ideas for STEM-inspired activities and information about the work we’re doing with ASAS to inspire the next generation of STEM leaders. Through this and other initiatives, the entire Teza Technologies team is committed to spotlighting the importance of STEM education.
