Future STEM Careers
In a world where a solid education is necessary for entrance into any career path, students are beginning to falter when it comes to expressing interest and motivation in the math and sciences. While there have always been a select few who shy away from these subjects of study, there have always been those who lean towards it.
Today, many students describe science and math as boring and useless. STEM education is meant to reverse these sentiments, and that reversal is needed as students grow up and enter the workforce. The simple truth is this: we need people who will take over the careers in STEM fields when older generations retire.
STEM education is designed to bring students back to these fields, to show them the practicality and, above all, show them how they can have fun with math and science. If interest in these fields continues to decline, the United States will fall behind in important research and development.
