Why STEM Matters...
"Everyone has a stake in improving STEM
education. Inspiring all our students to be capable in math and science
will help them contribute in an increasingly technology-based economy,
and will also help America prepare the next generation of STEM
professionals-scientists, engineers, architects and technology
professionals-to ensure our competiveness.”
–Arne Duncan, US Secretary of Education
