Topic Summary: STEM in Wisconsin

What is STEM?

“…an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy”

All across the state of Wisconsin innovative programs are happening in STEM education, with partnership among educators, government, and businesses supporting these efforts. Jobs projections show increasing demand for skilled STEM professionals but an uncertain pool of qualified applicants. While Wisconsin has grown slightly in STEM jobs through the past decade, we’re still below the national average in STEM job concentration.

Some of the programs sponsored by STEM, the first three our section Outreach is involved in, are;
