National STEM/STEAM Day

November 8

Held each year on November 8, STEM/STEAM Day is dedicated to all things science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

STEM (and STEAM) represents some of the fastest-growing and in-demand fields in the world today. And here at Engineering For Kids, we’re passionate about inspiring the next generation of engineers, artists, and innovators.

State and Federal lawmakers and educators are working to broaden and strengthen STEM/STEAM education at the K-12 levels. Naturally, students who excel in science and math at the high school level are going to be more likely to declare a STEM/STEAM major when they get to college. Students also enter the workforce directly after high school with little or no technical education courses under their belts. Those who did take STEM/STEAM-related programs at technical or vocational schools are more likely to enter skilled technical jobs. Ensuring students are ready for a workforce that expects them to be skilled and technically savvy is everyone’s responsibility. While these technical careers can lead to above-average salaries, the best way to start people down a path of science and engineering is by introducing STEM/STEAM curriculum early on.
