Welcome to STEMpact
Closing The STEM Skills Gap
In 2020, there will not be enough qualified candidates to fill 1.2 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) jobs. In Missouri alone there will be more than 100,000 openings. There is not the workforce to meet the demand. STEMpact is focused on meeting this challenge head-on. Through the long-term support of St. Louis' largest employers, we inspire all students for the careers of the future by teaching and encouraging educators to STEMitize everyday teaching methods through innovative professional development programs. The data shows that students who learn from teachers who have completed STEMpact programs perform better in math and science, and more importantly, they are now working toward future STEM careers with invaluable critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
