Delivering the World’s next generation of Scientists, Technologists, Engineers, and Mathematicians is no easy feat. Business demands these skills more than ever, yet there is a sizeable gulf between the current STEM curriculum and the skills and knowledge required for STEM professions.
How does one inspire and prepare a young student for a career in Nanotechnology, Aerospace Engineering or Microbiology, for example? How can we create STEM innovators through high quality educational programs? And how can we encourage females to pursue careers in these male-dominated industries (currently just 20% of STEM leadership positions are fulfilled by women).
These are some of the key topics being addressed at Informa’s 4th Annual STEM Education Conference.
