Science, Technology, Engineering and Math subjects (STEM) have become a frequent discussion topic in education and in the media. According to Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, the U.S. will only be able to fill about 50% of the projected 1.5 million new STEM jobs that will be created over the next decade. School systems, museums and libraries throughout the US are looking at ways to promote STEM learning. As part of our new technology center, we are also looking into ways to stimulate, engage and educate students with fun, interactive activities while promoting the importance of STEM education.
