  • STEM Education in North Carolina

    A globally competitive, knowledge-based economy is a fact of life for North Carolina's high school students-now and for the foreseeable future-and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are critical drivers in that economy. To reduce a potentially crippling
    workforce knowledge gap and to prepare more students-especially those who traditionally have been underrepresented - for STEM careers, North Carolina must make these disciplines accessible and relevant and fundamentally change approaches to teaching.

    This document outlines NCNSP's vision for STEM education, shares results at NCNSP STEM schools and offers a look at scaling STEM education statewide.
