STEM: Science Technology Engineering Mathematics Education

  • STEM, which focuses on students’ engagement and skills in science, technology, engineering, and math, is an important investment for the nation. In the 21st century, the projected growth in demand for mathematicians and scientists must be matched by a commensurate growth in the number of students studying and exceling in the subjects. Greater student participation in STEM will improve the country’s readiness for an evolving economy of the future.

    Academic Recognition of Military Experience in STEM Education

    Academic Recognition of Military Experience in STEM Education takes an in-depth look at how successfully increasing acceptance of military credit recommendations at institutions of higher education can be achieved through federal agencies, workforce development experts, and other key stakeholders using available resources and tools to build degree pathways that accurately map military training to STEM courses helping eliminate the stigma surrounding award of credit for prior-learning, and boosting support among leaders and institutions for increased acceptance of military credit recommendations. This approach will lead to the development of best practices and, ultimately, increased STEM attainment and veterans’ education success.
