Cary, NC – For America to maintain a top quality workforce in the coming decades, science, technology and math education needs to be a priority.
Toward that end, 100 top U.S. CEOs have banded together to form ChangeTheEquation.org. In their own words, “Change the Equation aligns corporate efforts in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to ensure that they add up to real, measurable growth in the achievement and STEM fluency of our nation’s young people.”
Part of the challenge is make those subjects attractive to the current generation of students. In the parlance of our children, growing up to be a scientist, mathematician or engineer has to be a “cool” career choice.
Change the Equation challenged its member companies to produce brief videos featuring an employee or group of employees who use math or science in exciting or unexpected ways. Many companies answered the call.
Congratulations to a Cary company and a flagship of the technology industry. Show this video to your kids.
Yes, Virginia, it’s cool to be a scientist, mathematician or engineer. In fact, it rocks.
