THE STEM PROGRAM CAN BE A PART OF A PLAN TO PROVIDE A FUTURE WORKFORCE TAILORED TO MEET INDUSTRY NEEDS

STEM can be a part of a successful plan to prepare future manufacturing and technical talent for manufacturing careers by providing them with relevant, hands-on knowledge and skills that will help them to successfully make the transition into the manufacturing workforce. STEM attendees need to develop 21st century advanced manufacturing skills before even graduating from high school.

STEM needs to be part of plan to focus on engaging and building a collaborative network between K-12 education and industry in a tailored approach to developing future talent.

Today, STEM provides opportunities for Students to be able to gain hands-on experience with state-of-the-art equipment; engage with other students and educators to share their experiences, attend advanced manufacturing/STEM camps, collaborate with industry partners to plan manufacturing-related events and access training materials and curriculum for learning and development.

By working together with manufacturers, this plan helps to expand the pipeline of qualified workers in a community. This provides companies with access to a highly skilled and educated local workforce, addressing one of the most critical elements of success for future growth and innovation. This plan can play an active role in the development of a trained future workforce tailored to meet industry needs.
