“It’s no secret the world is evolving at a rapid pace, and in order to keep up, young people must be more prepared than ever to enter institutions of higher learning and eventually the workforce. In particular, there is an increasing need for candidates with hands-on experience in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. According to Change the Equation, between the years 2014 and 2024, the number of STEM jobs will grow 17 percent, compared with 12 percent anticipated growth for non-STEM jobs. Knowing this, how do we ensure students are ready to tackle what lies ahead? Enter student competitions. It’s not your typical athletic contest or student election, but instead a competition involving robotics, engineering software, and collaboration.”(more)
