STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics

Abstract

Many leaders have argued that there is a shortage of STEM talent while others have contested this. The report examines this complex issue and concludes that:

"Our education system is not producing enough STEM-capable students to keep up with demand both in traditional STEM occupations and other sectors across the economy that demand similar competencies."

Scientists must be representatives of the whole population and demand for science and math competencies continues to grow since "STEM occupations are not just the impetus for economic expansion; they play an important role in expanding human possibility. STEM workers and those with STEM talent develop and design new medicines, build and design bridges and buildings, develop new technologies, and increasingly control the way we interact with the market by designing the architecture of our computers and the Internet."
