Description

EQUITY IN STEAM EDUCATION


In today's global economy, a high-quality education is no longer just a pathway to success ̶ it is a prerequisite. Because economic progress and educational achievement go hand in hand, educating every American student for success in a new workforce is a national imperative.

However, there are wide disparities in which students have access to advanced science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) education ̶ subjects critical to future success.

Join us for the inaugural Sally Ride STEAM Series panel discussion that will focus on the importance of STEAM to the innovation economy as well as how to best to ensure equity in education.
