Everett Public Schools hosts second STEM Symposium

Everett School District hosts second STEM Symposium

The skills represented in the acronym STEM, or science, technology, engineering and mathematics are highly sought by employers today. STEM workers also earn more. According to a 2011 US Department of Commerce report, STEM jobs have grown three times faster than non-STEM jobs in the last 10 years. The report predicts they will continue to do so for the next decade. During the economic downturn, more STEM workers stayed employed than did non-stem workers.

In a second of its community education symposiums, the district’s STEM Symposium on August 22 and 23 will bring educators and business leaders together to plan STEM partnerships. The goal is to leverage local resources and expertise to help infuse STEM instruction into all classrooms so students are ready to lead and shape the future.
