It has never been more important for our youth to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. These are the types of skills that students learn by studying science, technology, engineering, and math—subjects collectively known as STEM. This interesting topic came to us from Education DIVE in their article, “White House releases five-year STEM education strategy.

A report was recently released that detailed a five-year strategic plan for STEM education, based on a vision where “all Americans will have lifelong access to high-quality STEM education and the United States will be the global leader in STEM literacy, innovation and employment,” the document states.

A recent study by the World Economic Forum revealed that data-related jobs will be the most in demand within the next four to five years, along with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning specialists – all requiring STEM education.
