ENCOURAGING STEM STUDY IN MEMPHIS THROUGH ROBOTICS
Hi Middle School Students — do you have what it takes to pursue an exciting and rewarding career in science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics (STEM)? Want to find out?
According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, those with a STEM degree earn on average 26 percent more than their non-STEM counterparts. What’s more, STEM careers are some of the most satisfying and fascinating jobs available, leading to lifetime careers that can positively impact society. Those involved in the STEM fields conduct research, make new discoveries and create applications that expand and benefit our world every day.
Becoming engaged with STEM at a young age will open countless doors for a lifetime. More and more, teachers and school counselors are encouraging students to look closely at STEM training as a career choice. It is important to know that opportunities are growing fast for girls and women. Today, women comprise half the population but hold less than a quarter of STEM jobs. There is much room for gender progress.
