Judith Ramaley, Assistant Director of Education & Family Services (NSF) at the National Science Foundation, invented the word STEM in 2001 to define a program for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Since then, this curriculum approach has been used all over the world, but students in the U.S. have continued to lag academically in STEM achievements.

High school graduates are among the first to complete a full STEM-focusedK-12 program today. Although 86 percent of these high school grades are preparing to pursue a STEM career and 75 percent of college grades had increased in STEM-related fields in 2018, there are still not enough jobs in the region. In 2018, STEM-related vacancies of 2.4 million went unfilled as STEM currently houses 8 of the 10 fastest growing jobs. Technology will continue to grow and the need for workers who can learn those skills, adapt and solve problems will also increase. Read on to find out more about the increase in schools and STEM needs.
