Jobs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related careers are booming. The demand for skilled workers is high and the available talent pool of STEM graduates is not keeping up with the demand. The 4th Industrial Revolution is creating increased demand for skilled engineers, scientists, technologists, analysts and related fields. Whether it is to build the next great health technology, mine data to create Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence applications, or explore the fast-moving driver-less technologies the demand is high and organizations are hungry for new talent.
Our research explores the various STEM fields and highlights opportunities for both students and teachers to investigate together. When considering the future of STEM it is important to analyze the trends of both females and other underrepresented groups considering these fields.
- 74% of high school students in STEM classes are in a career pipeline that will require STEM skills.
- However, more work remains to be done to encourage more females and other underrepresented groups to pursue STEM education and careers.
