STEM Career  The demand for skilled workers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) is closely linked to global competitiveness.  There is a lack of gender and ethnic diversity of students entering STEM educational programs and career fields. Using creativity and innovation to address these challenges is critical to meeting this demand of skilled workers.  “In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation)
