Real simple. STEM experts with passion and purpose.
STEM Skills was created to help make students more college and workforce ready, and to help learners that want to prepare for one of millions of higher paying careers in STEM areas.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, better known collectively as STEM, have become a national focus for educators and employers. Managing our lives and businesses has become techno-centric and data-driven, so it stands to reason that the skills required for innovating and creating today’s and tomorrow’s apps, products, and devices will rely heavily on a workforce of STEM savvy, critical thinking individuals. Although technology is moving forward, the United States does not rank in the top 20 mathematically nor scientifically when compared on a global basis to approximately 74 countries*.
Using this metric drives the ultimate goal of the STEM Skills Initiative. Math literacy is the key to easily clearing the academic hurdles for STEM success. The nature of the STEM Skills online platform presents a framework to strengthen the skill sets of students that have challenges with STEM topics.
STEM Skills' primary mission is to emphasize the importance of math and science proficiency. The platform get.stemskills.online is a combination of basic, intermediate and advanced STEM courses and self assessments, to include general science courses for introducing and/or reinforcing the required STEM course material for various paths of study.
The online content of STEM Skills is designed to engage students, parents and non-traditional learners for the reinforcement of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
