Cultural Vistas
Catalysts for 
STEM Program Development 
• 16% of American high school 
students are interested in STEM 
• Only half of college students who 
study STEM pursue STEM-relevant 
careers 
• President Obama’s STEM Goals: 
• develop, recruit, and retain 100,000 
excellent STEM teachers over the 
next 10 years 
• asked colleges and universities to 
graduate an additional 1 million 
students with STEM majors. 
• improvements in STEM education 
will happen only if Hispanics, 
African-Americans, and other 
underrepresented groups in the 
STEM fields—including women, 
people with disabilities, and first- 
Source: www.ed.gov/stem generation Americans—participate.
U.S. Department of State 
2015 STEM Initiatives 
• Federal Five-Year Strategic Plan for STEM Education 
• STEM Innovation Proposal: $170 million in new funding that will help to 
train the next generation of innovators. Key activities include: 
• STEM Innovation Networks ($110 million): grants to school districts in 
partnership with colleges, and other regional partners to transform STEM 
teaching and learning by accelerating the adoption of practices in P-12 education 
that help to increase the number students who seek out and are well-prepared 
for postsecondary education and careers in STEM fields. 
• STEM Teacher Pathways ($40 million): provide competitive awards to high-quality 
programs that recruit and train talented STEM educators for high-need 
schools. 
• National STEM Master Teacher Corps ($20 million): identify, refine and share 
models to help America's best and brightest math and science teachers to make 
the transition from excellent teachers to school and community leaders and 
advocates for STEM education. The program will enlist, recognize and reward a 
national corps of outstanding STEM educators to help improve STEM teaching 
and learning in their schools and communities.

IAESTE Participant Emma W. 
Mechanical Engineering Major 
Placement: Bosnia, PetrolInvest 
• “One of the upsides of working in a 
relatively small company was the 
close relationships shared by the 
different departments. For example, if 
we needed to clarify or make changes 
to a design we were able to talk to the 
other departments in person. The 
collaborative energy was evident. 
Even though the work atmosphere 
was less rushed and stressed than 
how I’ve found it in America, 
everything was still finished on time. 
At the office, my coworkers were glad 
to have me around and liked to hear 
about the different plans I had for the 
weekends.”
STEM LAUNCH:

Relevant Reactions 
• It is important to open your horizons; one may never know 
the many abundant opportunities that are available if they 
do not step out of their comfort zone and explore. (Spelman 
College, Chemistry/Chemical Engineering ’15 Major) 
• This experience has opened my eyes to having a career 
internationally and being involved in foreign engagements. 
Being a consultant, I would love to travel to Germany again 
to work alongside one of the companies we visited. 
(Morehouse College, Industrial Engineering/Applied Physics 
’16 Major)

  • 37. IAESTE Participant Emma W. Mechanical Engineering Major Placement: Bosnia, PetrolInvest • “One of the upsides of working in a relatively small company was the close relationships shared by the different departments. For example, if we needed to clarify or make changes to a design we were able to talk to the other departments in person. The collaborative energy was evident. Even though the work atmosphere was less rushed and stressed than how I’ve found it in America, everything was still finished on time. At the office, my coworkers were glad to have me around and liked to hear about the different plans I had for the weekends.”
