Investing in STEM education is critical for the future of our youth and the Canadian economy. The term STEM originates from a UNESCO initiative that recognized the need to utilize human ingenuity and talents to help solve the tough global challenges of today through Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics. To find creative solutions to complex problems, youth need to be inspired to choose engineering or science as a career and making that choice depends on early exposure to STEM disciplines by passionate professionals.

Given the tremendous need for STEM education, parents, educators, mentors, corporations, philanthropists, and legislators all need to play a part in investing in STEM learning opportunities. Whether the investment is in time, mentorship, or money in educational resources, the immediate value of STEM education can be seen by all stakeholders.
