Why is it important for our children to grow up to be Scientists, Techies, Engineers and Mathematicians? We have a shortage of engineers in our workforce.

In order for the US to keep up with countries around the world, it’s imperative to raise leaders in these four areas. It has implications for workforce development, national security concerns and immigration policy. STEM workers play a key role in the sustained growth and stability of the U.S. economy, and training in STEM fields generally results in higher wages.

The Department of Labor identified 14 sectors that are “projected to add substantial numbers of new jobs to the economy or affect the growth of other industries or are being transformed by technology and innovation requiring new sets of skills for workers.” The identified sectors were as follows: Manufacturing, automotive, construction, financial services, homeland security, IT, transportation, aerospace, biotech, energy, healthcare, hospitality and retail. The Dept. Of Commerce notes STEM fields careers are some of the best­ paying and have the greatest potential for job growth in the early 21st century.

Our Foundation is announcing our participation in STEM education grant giving. We will start with 1 grant with a goal of 10 grants within the next year. Grants will be awarded to students from 7­18 years of age. The only way we can reach this goal is with your support. Your generous donations will pave the way for a bright future not only for our children but for our country as well.
