“In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation).

Students interested in STEM* careers want to understand how the world works and to solve real-world problems. They may wish to investigate the physical and natural world through observation and experimentation,  create and troubleshoot computer and information systems, and use numerical, spatial, and logical relationships to study and solve problems.

Tech Sector Needs LGBTQ+ Voices

As a career choice, the tech sector has come a long way since it first became a commercial entity in the 1960s. It had to. As technology evolved from its beginnings in government labs to scientific and industrial applications and on to personal computers, the people building and using the technology evolved, too. Now that it is integral to every aspect of our everyday lives — our work, health, education, transportation, commerce, entertainment — technology must reflect the people who use it. In other words, all of us.
