In today’s schools not enough of our youth have access to quality STEM learning opportunities, such as coding, web-design, and engineering adventures to name a few, and only a few students actually see these disciplines as springboards for their careers. According to the U.S. Dept. of Education 16% of American high school seniors are proficient in Math and interested in a STEM career; this leaves 84% of American students lacking proficiency in Math and uninterested in STEM careers or lacking the knowledge to pursue a career. Children’s race, zip code, or socioeconomic status should never determine their STEM fluency as determined by the U.S. Dept. of Education. All children should be given an equal opportunity to be college and career ready in order to thrive in a modern STEM economy.
