We are thinking of ways to , create awareness of STEM education and with four goals in mind. As a coailtion of industries the purpose is to align their efforts to develop our future workforce in order to build our nation;s economic competitiveness, sustain national security, and develop future jobs and employment specialties that engage a dynamic STEM workforce. We are foundations, industry and business associations, and a few teachers , foundations. We want to bring proven project based , hands-on STEM experiential student learning activities to a national scale and ensure that they are sustained and aligned with national goals for STEM Education. We seek to recruit, train and retain effective teachers. Employer want to identify early and nurture students with aptitudes for STEM and then attract students to and retain them in STEM Career Trakcs, particularly students who are underrepresented in the STEM workforce. Coalition membership is open to business and industry organizations that represent employees within STEM related fields.

The need is evident, yet the barriers are vast - recruiting and retaining highly qualified teachers with STEM backgrounds; school policies around credits and curriculum; student, teacher, and parent attitudes; time constraints; and lack of funding and/or leadership to infuse STEM approaches into the current system.
