Why do we need STEM career instruction?
The National Academy of Sciences identified three goals for STEM education:
*Increase the number of advanced degrees awarded and people entering advanced technology careers
*Increase the size and quality of the STEM-related workforce
*Improve STEM literacy for all students
A pilot study of Learning Blade showed the following results.
These students responded that:
72% learned something about new careers
76% learned something about technology
61% and 54% learned something about math and English, respectively
71% would rather use Learning Blade than do traditional homework
