Prepare Today’s Elementary Students for Tomorrow’s STEM Careers
What do data scientists, social media managers, and sustainability managers all have in common?
They all have STEM careers that did not exist 10 years ago. A growing body of research confirms what leading educators have long known: preparing today’s learners for the jobs of tomorrow requires developing next-gen skills and an interest in STEM ed at a young age. This is especially important for girls and people of color who are often underrepresented in STEM professions.
Elementary SmartLab HQ partner schools recognize this challenge and are taking positive steps to prepare their learners. One such partner is the Phenix City School District in Phenix City, Alabama.
This short video provides a glimpse of how Phenix City elementary schools emphasize this early learning experience.
