Annual Meeting 2016 - Leveraging Technology Trends & STEM: Example from Space

Breakout Session

This panel shares an overview and update of data about US STEM demand forecasts and areas of shortfalls through the year 2038 across all major STEM categories, comparisons to global STEM supply and demand, and the panelists’ assessments of the gaps in STEM strategies - both public and private. Panelists provide leading benchmark examples of private sector responses through illustrations from the space and aerospace community. Participants also learn about a new national initiative being launched by the Boy Scouts of American (BSA) to create STEM Scouts (coed) for the 21st Century to inspire STEM career interest in our youth through complementary partnerships with industry.
