The term "STEM" was coined by the National Science Foundation in 2001 – almost 20 years ago. They chose this term in order to focus the our collective attention and activity on the importance of developing a STEM educational foundation and, ultimately, a skilled workforce that could meet the nation’s economy and security imperative. Since then, we have invested heavily in improving STEM outcomes from K-12 years, through postsecondary, and into the workforce.
Naturally, that begs a question: "Over the last two decades, have we seen any improvement in STEM education and workforce outcomes?"
This is the third question in the State of STEM Data Series, which provides short, easily digestible sets of answers to the STEM talent data questions that our members face from inside and outside their organizations.
