It’s time to guarantee that all children can participate in educational programs that expand their economic opportunities and equip them as future leaders in our community.
In Missouri and Illinois, 3 our of 4 fastest growing occupations are in STEM fields. Business leaders in the region cannot find the STEM talent they need to stay competitive.
How do we overcome this deficit? Education is the key to meeting the STEM demand, and STEMpact is an innovative and proven program for educators filling that need.
STEMpact believes that teachers are in the best position to inspire and prepare students for STEM success. To meet the growing demand for integrating STEM topics into all subjects, we’ve designed ground-breaking, professional development programs targeted to educators, schools, and districts. As a result of our efforts, we’ve seen the growing success of STEMpact participants and how they are making an impact. Most importantly, we’ve witnessed the growth of student achievement as they become critical thinkers and problem solvers.
However, as the demand for STEM education continues to grow, we realize that we can’t do it alone. STEMpact is a unique, collaborative approach that combines the resources and human capital of major regional corporations and foundation, local schools and districts, and Washington University in St. Louis – one of the world’s leading research universities.
Together, we can continue to build our region’s STEM capacity by developing quality schools, so all students can enter the workforce and compete for the jobs of the future. With your donation, we can expand enrollment to accommodate all educators eager to bring STEM education into their classrooms and schools.
