Educators are the foundation of our world. We rely on you to help pave the way and guide the paths of our youth. Statistics have shown that the need for better mathematics and science skills will be critical to our nation’s growth. The importance of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education has increasingly become the greatest concern in the education of our youth. Your knowledge and interest in STEM education is a great indicator of the depth of knowledge your students gain in the classroom to prepare them for the jobs of the future.
