Abstract

Projections show that 80% of jobs created in the next decade will require some form of STEM expertise and that STEM workers will earn higher wages—26% more than non-STEM jobs.2 Data from the Center on Education and the Workforce at Georgetown University predicts that job growth will continue at a rapid rate in STEM-related fields such as health care, information technology, and natural resources management3, fields that require creative problem solving and critical thinking about complex problems.
