Student Outreach through STEM
In order to maintain a sustainable industry we must engage the youth in the engineering field and educate them on the opportunities a career path in engineering can bring. Understanding the diversity in the industry starts with the interactions with our youth we strive to get out into the community and provide supplemental information to students about the world of engineering and technology.
Many organizations are working to expand STEM education, including the introduction of engineering curriculum in the K-12 system, including:
STEM Education Coalition
works aggressively to raise awareness in Congress, the Administration, and other organizations about the critical role that STEM education plays in enabling the U.S. to remain the economic and technological leader of the global marketplace of the 21st century.
Change the Equation
(CTEq) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, CEO-led initiative that is mobilizing the business community to improve the quality of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning in the United States.
Project Lead The Way
(PLTW) is a leading provider of STEM education curricular programs to middle and high schools in the United States.
Changing the Conversation
promotes broad implementation by the engineering community of the findings and recommendations presented in the 2008 NAE report, Changing the Conversation: Messages for Improving Public Understanding of Engineering
Pennsylvania STEM Initiative
is an education partnership between Team Pennsylvania Foundation and numerous partners with a goal to dramatically increase the number of students (especially females, minorities and the underrepresented) entering STEM-related careers while retraining, recruiting and re-training the incumbent workforce in these critical fields.
