  2. STEM • What is STEM? • Science • Technology • Engineering • Mathematics

  3. STEM "... Leadership tomorrow depends on how we educate our students today—especially in science, technology, engineering and math." — President Barack Obama, September 16, 2010 http://www.ed.gov/stem

  4. How STEM affects your life today • Have a chance to impact millions of lives • Science: Research into cure for a disease • Technology: Programs to aid doctors with diagnosis • Engineering: Materials to deliver drugs and processes for manufacture of drugs • Mathematics: Dosage calculations, analysis of patient recovery, prediction of recovery

  5. Do you ...? • Have an analytical nature • Like to figure things out • Have curiosity • Have Creativity • Are a problem solver • Attentiveness to Detail • Enjoy a little Challenge • Like to work with people or alone

  6. Future of STEM • With the rate of changing technology increasing at a more rapid pace, there is a large demand for those who are equipped with STEM related skills to solve the problems of tomorrow. • In a technology based world, those in STEM careers drive change.
