The Role of STEM and Education, and its Economic Impact

October 20, 2015

“STEM education…extends beyond the content knowledge to include the development of really critical life and workforce skills.”

“We have a real risk of being out-innovated…that really puts in jeopardy the financial well-being of the world’s largest economy.”

“We’ve got to take a hard look…and understand where the United States sits vis-a-vis the rest of the industrialized world when it comes to STEM preparedness.”
