The Growing Interest in STEM
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Education. Go visit my post on Sylvan Learning Blog that talks about why companies are putting major efforts towards STEM programs.
“The U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) will grow 17 percent by 2018—nearly double the growth for non-STEM fields. By 2018, the U.S. will have more than 1.2 million unfilled STEM jobs because there will not be enough qualified workers to fill them. STEM is where jobs are today and where the job growth will be in the future.” (Source Forbes)
