STEM At A Glance
Get STEMulated's mission is to introduce students to the exciting world of science, technology, engineering and mathematics by engaging them in practical educational workshops and providing supplementary resources.
WHAT WE DO
Get STEMulated is a learning program with workshops designed to provide supplementary learning techniques to enhance students' understanding of science, technology, engineering and math principles for k-12 boys and girls and their families. We incorporate engineering, biology, medicine, chemistry, physics and more through experiments to engage our students and make learning more exciting.
WHY WE DO
Over the past 10 years, growth in STEM jobs was 3X as fast as growth in non-STEM jobs. STEM occupations are projected to grow 17% through 2018, compared to 9.8% growth for non-STEM occupations. STEM workers also command higher wages, earning 26% more than their non-STEM counterparts. In addition,STEM workers are less likely to experience joblessness than their non STEM counterparts. And if they do experience joblessness, they are quicker to find a new job than a non-STEM professional.
Only 1 in 5 STEM college students feel that their k-12 experience prepared them extremely well for their college courses in STEM
Nearly 4 in 5 STEM College Students say they decided to study STEM in high school or earlier, and parents say STEM interests began at an early age (8.2 years)
