With hopes of preparing the next generation of professionals, S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) experiences and exploration are at the forefront of formal and informal learning. Current research tells us that children in the 21st century will benefit from early experiences in S.T.E.M. learning. The National Math and Science Initiative shares that the U.S. needs one million more S.T.E.M. professionals over the next decade than it is projected to produce at the current rate. Further, of the 20 fastest growing careers, 15 of them require a background of math and science.
