This past June, more than 2,000 business, government, and education leaders gathered in Austin, Texas, to discuss the state of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education in the United States at the U.S. News STEM Solutions National Conference. The USA Science & Engineering Festival was honored to attend and we are looking forward to our partnership for the 2014 National Conference this coming April.
“This is the absolutely perfect time to be talking about STEM education,” explained Barbara Bolin, executive director of the Michigan STEM partnership. “Because STEM education is not simply an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEM education is a new way of educating people.”
