Envisioning STEM Education for All
Repost from Phoenix Business Journal
Whether it’s [the] annual Arizona SciTech Festival or Chief Science Officers program, the SciTech Institute has been successful in getting a new generation excited about taking the lead in the next generation of our state’s workforce. As it turns out, the Institute (previously known as the Arizona Technology Council Foundation) is totally in synch with a new initiative to take the lessons of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and use them to benefit the entire nation. “Charting a Course for Success: America’s Strategy for STEM Education” is a report just issued by the Committee on STEM Education of the National Science & Technology Council. Its purpose is to offer a federal strategy based on a vision for a future where all Americans will have lifelong access to high-quality STEM education and the nation will be the global leader in STEM literacy, innovation and employment.
