STEM in Motion - BASA Conference

  1. 1. STEM N E W S T E M A C A D E M Y P R E PA R E S T O D AY ’ S S T U D E N T S F O R T O M O R R O W ’ S C A R E E R S in Motion
  2. 2. WHAT IS STEM? SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS
  3. 3. STEM facts: -Not enough students are graduating with STEM backgrounds to fill the open positions in the marketplace. -If current trends continue, more than 90 percent of all scientists and engineers in the world will be living in Asia. -More than 50 percent of all engineering doctoral degrees awarded by United States engineering colleges are to foreign nationals. -During the next decade, the United States demand for scientists and engineers is expected to increase at four times the rate for all other occupations. -The United States ranks 20th among all nations in the proportion of 24-year-olds who earn degrees in natural science or engineering. -The United States ranked 28th in math literacy and 24th in science literacy, according to a 2008 report by the Congressional Research Service. -More than half of teens (55%) would be more interested in STEM simply by having teachers who enjoy the subjects they teach “In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation)
  4. 4. Demand for STEM workers is projected to Increase  New Bureau of Labor Statistics data show that employment in STEM occupations is expected to expand by 17% from 2010 to 2020. It is estimated that 80% of all jobs in the next decade will require a strong foundation in STEM
  5. 5. STEM is in most Careers

  9. 9. MECHS Marysville STEM Early College High School is a school of choice for Marysville High School Students. Opening in August, 2014, it is funded through Ohio’s Straight A Fund Grant with the intention of providing students with a STEM focused, inquiry based curriculum based on real world experiences.
  10. 10. EARLY COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL Early College High Schools blend high school and college in a rigorous yet supportive program, compressing the time it takes to complete a high school diploma and the first two years of college. Students completing early college high schools can earn a high school diploma and up to two years of college as well.
