Students Think STEAM is an initiative to increase the number of students going into S.T.E.A.M. - Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Agriculture, Aviation, Aerospace and Math.
Presently, there are over 5 million jobs in STEM going unfilled. America is not producing enough workforce to fill the available jobs in STEM/STEAM. In addition, by 2000 according to Georgetown Recovery 2020, there will be another 55 million jobs available due to people retiring and newly created jobs. There is a huge workforce gap when it comes to students of color, particularly African American and Latino students.
National College Resources Foundation addresses these concerns with the Students Think STEAM initiative by bringing STEAM into classrooms, school events, open houses, festivals, community events, youth programs, churches, and fairs.National College Resources Foundation Student’s Think STEAM Initiative provides a fun interactive way for students to learn, grow and get excited about STEM and STEAM fields. Students learn the fundamentals and application of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Agriculture, Aviation, Aerospace and Math, which will help them perform better in the classroom and become responsible citizens.
