Our mission is simple. We help youth grow their interests
in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Jobs in STEM fields are important to our nation's future success.
Unfortunately, students tend to lose interest during high school. High school seniors are 10 percent less likely to be interested in STEM-related careers than their freshmen counterparts.
The U.S. science and technology workforce, 7.4 million people in 2012, is expected to top 8.6 million by 2018. When the number of self-employed in STEM fields is included, the projected number jumps to 15.7 million. The estimated shortage is as many as 3 million people in high-skilled STEM jobs by 2018.
