So what is STEM?

Major reports over the last few years have propelled the need for comprehensive STEM education – Science,Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Educators at all levels are encouraged to hear this message. President Obama has championed the cause, and many states have renewed energy in developing comprehensive plans for improving the delivery of STEM education to students. News reporting, departments of education, school districts and principals are all pointing to the need for quality STEM education.

Concern for the nation's economic competitiveness and the related need for education programs in support of future generations is not new. But, data connecting teachers' lack of preparedness with students' underperformance in STEM has raised the alarm to new levels. It's time to take action! And Dignity Kids wants to help!

Today, an understanding of scientific and mathematical principles, a working knowledge of computer hardware and software, and the problem-solving skills developed through integrated STEM curricula are necessary for most jobs.  Specialized jobs in STEM fields increased by 32 percent from 2002 to 2012, and the number of 18 to 24 year olds in the United States who receive scientific degrees has fallen from third to 17th in the world in the last three decades.
