STEM is CTE

Saturday, December 9, 12:15-5:15 p.m.

 

CTE classrooms offer hands-on learning environments that bring sciencetechnologyengineering and mathematics (STEM) to life, apply core academics to real-world situations and provide creative problem-solving skills to our nation’s most pressing issues. Together, STEM and CTE expand opportunities for youth to engage in some of the most exciting realms of discovery, technological innovation and high-paying, high-demand careers.

This outstanding event, so popular in 2016 that we're bringing it back to VISION this year, brings together education and business leaders from across the country to address access to STEM-related career paths through CTE programming for all students, especially for women who are still underrepresented in STEM fields. According to the Census Bureau's 2009 American Community Survey, women comprise 48 percent of the U.S. workforce but just 24 percent of workers in STEM fields. Half as many women work in STEM jobs as would be expected if gender representation in STEM professions mirrored the overall workforce. And, females hold only four percent of trade jobs in the U.S. leaving a gap in innovation and skills.
