The Future of STEM Education — What Will 2013 Bring?

A very hot topic this year has been STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) education. We have seen news outlets, politicians, parents, schools and even those in the entertainment industry rallying their support for STEM. It seems like the nation is really starting to take notice of the education gap and wants to work hard to fix it. We admire all of those advocates out there that work tirelessly on education reform, and are passionately dedicated to bringing about STEM education changes in our schools.

We now pose this question to you, What STEM education reform do you think will be the most critical and beneficial in 2013?

3D Academy, the education branch of 3D Innovations, is very focused on STEM education and we are currently ramping up for more opportunities in 2013 to visit schools and provide training services specializing in 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology. We are anticipating that more schools are going to actively search for ways to increase their STEM education opportunities for students, instead of cutting funds to these areas, in 2013 and welcome this kind of positive change!

It’s encouraging to observe that countries all over the world have finally realised the importance of STEM teachers and STEM curriculums in the schools. Asia has been previously disadvantaged to access of qualified STEM teachers – but slowly change is happening, thanks in part to teachers from other countries. In observing many websites on this subject, I have found an excellent source of information at http://www.rackspace.com/blog/spotlight-on-stem-education-infographic/. It highlights and emphasises the importance as well as the prospects of STEM.
Definitely worth the read.
