STEM is a category name for programs involving science, technology, engineering, and math. We are living in the digital age, which means computers and technology are important tools and require learned skills. Now is the time to learn about STEM programs and consider a career in the field.
The Michigan STEM Partnership stated that “STEM job creation over the next 10 years will outpace non-STEM jobs significantly, growing 17%, as compared to 9.8% for non-STEM positions.” Careers in STEM are not only needed, profitable, and stable, but also interesting. The best way to see if STEM is a possible career path is to take a STEM program in high school.
The available programs include computer networking, computer programming, digital multimedia, engineering/CAD, and robotics/mechatronics. Each program has hands-on projects, engaging content, “real” life application, career preparation, and excellent instructors. Students not only gain technical knowledge, but also general and soft skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativity, and work ethic.
