Interest in STEM careers rising

A study released by the Economic Policy Institute says it is unlikely there will be a shortage of STEM workers, or students who graduate with degrees in science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics.

An article on The Chronicle of Higher Education said, “Many educators and politicians say that colleges need to increase science and technology enrollments to meet workforce demands.”

The study found a sufficient number of students responded to the idea of increasing STEM enrollment to meet work force demands.
A study released by stemconnector.org states the number of high school seniors with an interest in STEM careers has increased by 20 percent since 2004.
