In order to prepare students for the future jobs that may not even exist today, students need to have strong skills and understandings of STEM concepts. The U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that jobs in STEM fields will grow 17 percent by 2018—nearly double the growth for non-STEM fields. By 2018, the U.S. will have more than 1.2 million unfilled STEM jobs because there will not be enough qualified workers to fill them. STEM is where jobs are today and where job growth will be in the future.

Anticipating this need, the Hudson and Medway Public School Districts and Saint Peter-Marian Central Catholic Junior/Senior High School implemented integrated STEM educational programs. During this session a panel of district representatives will discuss how the STEM programs were initiated at the schools, what professional development was provided to the teachers, and strategies to build community support for the new programs. Data on student performance and outcomes will also be presented.

Audience participation and discussion are encouraged during the session so all can learn from each other’s experiences.
