“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.
