We are living in an exciting time in which science, technology, math, and engineering are playing ever-increasing roles in our daily lives. And in case you did not catch on there, STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. Whether you are interested in a tech-driven industry or teaching these concepts, getting an education in a STEM field can take you places you never imagined. Skill matters and we are hoping to provide you with information and tools to help guide you through your own personal STEM education journey.
We have the power to change the world with technology (and educating others in technology-related fields). When it comes to new technology, there are countless minds involved in the process of creating and advancement. Whether that be in regards to design, safety, or improvement, STEM professionals of all kinds play an important role from start to finish.
Less than 20% of high school graduates are interested in entering the STEM field (U.S. Department of Education), so there is great need for individuals just like you! And the need is there now. So, if you have been entertaining the idea of an education in STEM, then the Skill Matters Blog is the perfect place for you to browse to get ideas, inspiration, and the inside scoop on all things STEM. Here you will get input from people who may have just a slight interest to professionals who have been working in STEM careers for decades.
