Why is our work important?
Despite making up 48% of the overall workforce, only 24% of STEM workers are women. The decline in interest in the STEM fields begins at a young age. In fact, by the time US students reach 12th grade, only 26% are proficient in math, and only 21% are proficient in science, even though, over the next decade, the US could need as many as 1 million more STEM professionals than the educational system is currently providing. Getting kids excited about STEM early is critical: Students interested in STEM fields by 8th grade are three times more likely to choose a STEM major and career!
